The P6S5AT spec sheet shows a USB 1.1 port.

You can boot from it.

If the BIOS will let you boot from it directly, you just install directly onto a USB stick.

If the BIOS doesn't let you boot from it directly, you do the exact same install, but you boot the OpenBSD bootloader from CD/DVD drive or from diskette, and select the kernel installed on the stick.

Either option works fine, and if booting from diskette you can create a boot.conf(5) file to automatically load the kernel from USB stick.

I've never heard of the ISO you're looking for either, and if it is based on OpenBSD 3.8, you'll be entirely on your own. That release has been unsupported since 1 November, 2006.
