Virtual PC files on a flash drive?

By alanlwright ·
this is a question to see if anyone has ever installed a virtual HD onto a removable flash drive. it is easy enough to get a 2 or 4 gig flash drive, so what would be the obstacles to installing your vhd files to the flash to avoid using PC hard drive space?

why would anyone want this? one scenario i can give is a help desk environment where a different OS or even a different lang of same OS can be used to troubleshoot user issues. an easily accessible virtual machine would be ideal for walking client through the steps to resolve configuration issues.

(of course licensing is an issue, but setting that aside, this is a can-it-be-done question)

any ideas would be appreciated.
