Next I need to figure out how to stop it displaying several splash screens before I'm able to remove the usb stick 'safely' (on the Mac you either press 'eject' or you simply drag the icon to the trash- nice and simple.)


Ok, this is hidden a bit ... put the USB stick into the computer and start a file explorer (my computer or whichever of the incarnation you like most) and click right on any diskdrive. Select properties from the popup menu and then go to the hardware tab. Select the USB drive from the list and click on the properties button. In the window then popping up go to the policies tab and select "optimize for quick removal" (turning of write caching). Click OK a few times, and from now on you can simply pull out the USB stick when it's light is off, no need for safe removal or eject.

AFAIK this is a per computer setting, so you'll want do this on every XP box you use the stick with.

On a mac you simply unmount the volume. A spontanous pull-and-go is not recommended.
