bootable memory stick?

Howdy all.....:-)

Looking for any information on prefered method for installing XP and/or Vista *to* a USB (8 gig) memory stick. The stick is to be used for troubleshooting purposes (ie booting up and scanning inoperative systems).

Any pointers, url's etc would be most appreciated....thanks!
