    No because USB flash drives are slave USB controllers, not a master controller. (or something like that, I just know it won't work.)

    USBs can be masters.
    for example, its possible to boot linux off of an usb.

    no, what you said was entirely wrong. Yes linux can boot from a usb mass storage device, but its plugged into a host, the computer, which does the booting.
