How to boot a harddisk (USB, firewire or w/e) if there is no native support to boot such a device with BIOS?

Please tell me solutions. I like stable and generic ones. Currently I know only Plop and distro specific disks (for debian and puppy). Anything else?

It is possible with Linux systems to use a "kicker" disk, though of course the distro must be modified accordingly, and the "kicker" is usually "distro specific".

Read this:

and do check the supergrub bootdisk:
