Default Pen drive boot

I just got a 2 gb USB pen drive.

I need to know how to partition it, install windows on it, boot with it, etc.

I dont know how you would go about installing windows on it. Maybe if you were to change around your drive letters, so that the pen drive is drive c, then put the windows cd in, when in windows, and install it. Just make sure you have the option to boot from usb.

Does your motherboard support booting from an external drive?
