    I 've looking a lot on the web for this but I can't find anything...

    Surely it doens't take that much more than getting an image of a functioning os x on a usb drive, unless apple disallows booting from usb flash drives (it doesn't for usb external hds)...

    Also the fs will be something to think about, HFS+ looks like it will be a dog on flash usb drive...

    Any heads up appreciated.

    Try this one. It worked for me, just installed Snow Leopard from my USB flash drive (16gb).
