Boot from USB flash drive on Shuttle KPC?

I have a Shuttle KPC that has Foresight Linux installed on it.  The  
system doesn't boot anymore because one or more of the filesystems are  
corrupt.  The KPC does not have a CD/DVD drive so I am looking to boot  
from a USB drive to remove the faulty drive from fstab and attempt to  
repair everything.  I downloaded and installed Fedora 10 via liveusb- 
creator onto a 16GB PNY flash drive.  I cannot get my KPC to boot from  
it.  It keeps going to the Foresight boot menu.  I either need to (1)  
figure out how to configure the BIOS to boot from the drive --  
assuming it's even possible or (2) figure out how to boot from the usb  
from the Foresight boot loader menu.  Ideas???

Thanks in advance,
