i'm planning out a Zotac IONITX-B-E Atom N230 FE and am looking to
boot/run off of a USB stick.  what speed is fast enough to limit any
hiccups during playback/menu navigation?  i wouldn't think it would be
a huge deal since the USB stick will just contain the OS and FE while
all content would be coming over the wire, but i've seen mention of
slow USB sticks causing issues.
most of the sticks i've looked at list their speed at 200x, but what
does that mean?  i've only seen a few that have any r/w performance
listed. any thoughts/suggestions?

Newegg has the Zotac IONITX-B-E Atom N230 listed at ~$135 with a $35
rebate right now.
