Loading Linux From A USB Stick

I read a tutorial by WHS (I think) outlining steps to take when you need to use Linux to get files off a system with a corrupted OS.
I would like to know which of the following first boot device choices I would use to boot Linux off of a USB stick ??

USB-FDD
USB-ZIP
USB-CDROM
