It's always a cop out (IMHO!) when you just point someone somewhere else. However. Bootdisk.com are excellent for this:
http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm
gives:
Make your flash drive bootable using Bart's mkbt util:
http://www.nu2.nu/mkbt/ | Alt: mkbt20.zip
Put a bootable floppy disk in your A: drive or create one using Windows.
Download mkbt20.zip and unpack to to new temp folder you create.
Go to the temp folder.
Extract the bootsector from the bootable floppy disk. eg Open a DOS Window and go to the directory where you extracted MKBT. Type:
mkbt -c a: bootsect.bin
The boot sectors from the bootable floppy disk have just been saved to a file in the temp folder you created.
Format the flash drive in FAT or FAT16.
Copy the bootsector to the flash drive. Open a DOS Window and go to the folder where you extracted MKBT. Type:
mkbt -x bootsect.bin Z:
"Z" represents the flash drive drive Letter. So if your flash drive has another drive letter, then change the "Z" accordingly.
Now you can [grin] "should" be able to copy the utils you need to the pen drive.
 or:
Try these 2 HP/Compaq USB Flash Drive Utilities. They work with many other brands of flash drives as well.
HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool Version 2.0.6

HP Drive Key Boot Utility Version 7.41
