I'm wondering if I can use SuperDuper to back up to a USB flash drive, and moreso if that flash drive backup could be made bootable for Intel Macs. With these little things getting up into the 4GB+ range, they're looking better and better for a quick, portable backup. But if they're bootable, hey, that's even better! Thanks in advance for any advice.

I don't think 4GB is large enough to hold a backup of OSX, let alone your system... but if formatted HFS+ and properly partitioned with GUID it should be bootable if you somehow manage to cut things down enough to fit.
