Default Installing for dual boot w/o CD/Floppy

I've just purchased a ASUS netbook, and it came loaded with Win7 starter and nothing but USB ports and memory card slots. I don't own a USB floopy or CD-ROM drive, and don't really want to buy one.

Originally I was thinking, that I would like to install OpenBSD on it and utilize it as a terminal for SSH/X11 to a much more powerful Linux box. Although as is, this damn thing is faster than my 5-year old laptop! So maybe that's a moot point.

Either way, I would kinda like to try OpenBSD on this :-)




My problem is twofold: using only USB (I've got a 4GB stick) or an SD card, how can I both resize the partitions for a dual boot, and install OpenBSD? I assume this will help for doing the USB stick but, the resize, I'm kinda clueless on... lol
