These would involved restoring the OSX DVD to a USB using Transmac and using the NetbookCD (or NetbookUSB for Windows) as a bootloader and it will be similar to the NetbookBootMaker method for the Mac.
This is actually an ongoing project of mine (the USB boot key) ever since I wrote my first guide for setting up a USB boot drive from Windows (with the old DellEFI methods.) NetbookCD came as a learning opportunity to help me not only update the boot CD methods, but to learn how Chameleon actually works. It really won't be that hard to make a Chameleon boot image for USB in a similar fashion. However, simply copying the contents of NetbookCD won't accomplish that, there is a file that needs changed and a few tweaks are necessary. But just so you know, that's what I'm looking into next.
