I used the command
dd if=/home/sathya/knoppix.iso of=/dev/sdb ibs=4b obs=1b conv=notrunc,noerror.
But while rebooting my comp with the USB drive as the first boot drive, I get "Insert bootable disk error". Why is it so?

yeah..I guess.. I mean the BIOS allows me to select the USB drive as the first bootable disk. Doesn't this mean that it supports boot from USB?
