Even if the BIOS doesn't support booting from USB, I just read today about a tool for Windows that will let you boot from USB even if the BIOS doesn't let you. In any case, most any system purchased in the past 5 years or more will boot from USB just fine, though you may need to enable that feature in the BIOS.

As for booting different operating systems from a thumb drive, I taught a mini-class to an IEEE group in Chicago last year that showed how to do that for system recovery. One great tool, found on sourceforge.net, is Unetbootin.
