Any solution for setting up usb boot on Windows?

I really want to try this OS, and my computer cant boot from a DVD.

Is there any solution for setting up a bootable usb stick on Windows?

I tried programs that claimed they could open the Solaris .usb files, but they were unsuccessful.

Or maybe a Solaris developer could set up a .iso image thats suited for usbs? that would be the end to all this trouble.

    Actually I managed to get it working in Virtual Box, by changing BIOS settings. I'm currently using Solaris to type this reply.

    And it has made a good impression on me. Gnome desktop, apache web server included by default, workspaces viewable from desktop.

    I would have preferred to boot it through USB, as Virtual Box is only feeding it 900mb of ram. But for now it will do.
