I'm shopping for a USB Flash Drive.  Must be:

USB 2
bootable -- play well with linux

would be nice if it

supported autorun.inf (under XP Pro) like  http://www.hsc-us.com/consumer/usb_flashdrive/UDRW.html

looking for three devices

(1) 256 megs
(2) 512 megs
(2) 1 gig


Best price may include rebates, but only from reputable vendors (and with whom you've personally cashed a rebate check)

I live in the western United States.


thank you

I think you could go for GEN-X they have a lot of discounts also. But I personally bought an LG original one . Be sure to enquirein the market about the duplicates and the originalls as I got just cheatd. I bought my LG original so I go a manufactures warranty for two years
