How do I set up a thumb drive with pre-loaded files?

I want to use a thumb drive to promote a client's project.  We would have some thumb drives (1 or 2 GB) custom designed/printed and shipped blank to my office.  I would then pre-load the thumb drives with promotional materials and hand out the drives.  I would like it to be such that say 20% of drive would be my special section for the promotional materials which the recipeint could not delete, and the remainder could be blank making it usable for whatever purpose the recipient wishes.  Maybe even set it up such that it shows two (2) removable drives in MY COMPUTER when the drive us inserted.  "DRiVE E" would be the promotional materials and "DRIVE F" would be the blank section.  How could this be done?
