Is Portege 244 OCT - possible to boot from a CD external-ROOM


I just have an old Toshiba Portege 344 portable OCT with a 6 GB HD and a processor intel Pentium III 500 MHz processor and 128 MB of RAM. For the moment I got it under Windows XP Home Edition. I would like to go back to Windows 98SE, but the computer does not have a floppy drive or a CD-ROM internal. It has a usb port, however. I'm trying to start the windows 98 cd from a cdrom drive external usb (EZ - DUB), but it does not work. I don't seem to find an option to boot from a USB device no more. My bios is June 27, 2001.

Is there something I can do in order to manage to start my computer from my EZ - BUB? and how can I update my bios to the v1.6 without the floppy drive?

Thank you



I forgot to ADD. An external USB floppy drive would do the trick?
Thanks again,
