I'm looking for advice and/or pointers. I have an Intel-based MacBook Pro and I would like to use a USB thumb drive to be able to boot FreeBSD on it. Some questions:
1) Is this even possible? I've read that you _can_ boot Mac OS X from a USB hard drive on a new MacBook but I'm not sure if the same goes for non-Mac OSen or thumb drives. 2) What steps should I take to partition the thing? What boot code should I use and where should it live? I'm planning to do a manual installation in any event. 3) If I manage to get 1 and 2 sorted out, will I be able to boot the same thumb drive on a regular PC? Will any additional steps be necessary? 4) Just to be contrary, I'd also like to use GELI (if possible) for everything but /boot. Does needing an extra /boot partition change anything? I'll be doing some experimenting, but if some things are already known (not) to work I'd like to start with as much info as possible.
