I just tried installing FreeDOS 1.2 Lite from a 512 meg USB drive onto a WYSE 
S30. Result? Failure.
It boots and launches the setup. First is says there's no fixed disk, then is 
says drive D: is not partitioned. So I have it partition and reboot.
Repeats this exactly the same. The BIOS *does* prevent some critical access to 
the IDE when booted from USB or when attempting to boot an OS from the IDE, 
except when using an OS and BIOS updater from USB or an OS from the IDE that 
came from WYSE.
The workaround at the bottom of this page will have to be implemented in 
FreeDOS in order to install it from USB.
