Have update my doc-page ---> 
FC5 boot off of usb external box.
Have customized few initrd, like one can see at the very end of the page.
Happy if it could help someone :)

Specification : spacialy for motherboard that cant boot off of usb 
nativly. Booting from dos .... have a look if you are interesting.
This is the only way to boot, for me !
