    As there are people who are loading business card installs of Debian on flash cards I don't see why not. Don't as me how to do it though as I don't have a flash card so I've never set one up.

    What sorts of files? Will Linux be able to read all the different Windows file formats? I know with OpenOffice.org, you could read any Office created files...but what about other sorts of programs.

    Why not check the manufacture's website to see if they say it is Linux-compatible ?
