booting off a PNY usb pendrive

I'm starting to see more live Linux distros that are bootable off USB sticks. I have 2 USB sticks or memory drives. The first is a small Lexar Jumpdrive that's only 128 MB. I put Puppy on it and it boots fine. I wanted to use my second USB stick (a PNY 1 GB attache) for a larger USB distro. Problem is that I cannot get it to boot even with Puppy using the same setup procedure I did on the Lexar. I called PNY and they said that their USB stick was not made to be bootable, though third party software may be able to do this.

I googled around and could not find a method to get this thing to boot. Has anybody successfully gotten a PNY attache to boot? If so, how?
