I made a bootable USB drive (backtrack 3) and I am trying to get it to boot off of this laptop.  I confirmed the USB drive is bootable on an old Dell laptop (the dell gives me the option to hit F12 for boot menu).  Does the Asus Eee PC 1002HA have a shortcut to get to the boot menu?  I already tried setting the bios to boot off of the USB drive and no luck.  I even disabled the HD from booting and still no luck.  Any ideas?  I can't find anywhere if there is a shortcut to bring up a boot menu.

Shutdown your machine.  Press the power button and immediately start tapping the esc key.  This should open your boot menu.

Best Regards,
