Zeta According to the Cola Coder, an upcoming update to ZETA 1.0 will enable booting from USB devices. This will not only allow installation of ZETA on laptops that do not have an optical drive, but it will also make it possible to install to and run ZETA from a USB memory stick.

Kancept - find me a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter thats willing to support a very damn new laptop HDD and I'll try that.. the three of them I have here won't let me read the HDD, two of them won't even power it on.

USB is "bootable" on this age of Sony's but only with Sony components. Only one such component exists, their own floppy drive.... which I don't have

The floppy drive in the dock is standard MFM, but that doesn't get around the Zeta-not-able-to-see-its-own-CD issue.
