Get yourself a UBCD (provided you can boot from CD on that PC, it includes a tool under HDD, Boot Management, called Plop Bootmanager. With this you can then select bootable USB devices attached to your USB ports. This won't work for additional PCCard USB ports for laptops, only built-in ports will work:

If your PC also can't boot from CD you can also download the tool directly from the author's site and put it on a floppy disk, and boot from that (provided your PC has a floppy Disk, which often is the case with PC's that have such an old BIOS that can't boot to USB:

It is also installable to the HD and then you can boot the USB via that.
