How can I install Ubuntu alongside XP without being able to boot from a DVD drive?

I've recently purchased a new external USB DVD drive, as I do not have a floppy drive or internal CD/DVD drive on this windows PC. I am trying to set it up now for dual-booting Solaris+Ubuntu but, even after updating the BIOS (Phoenix 6.00) I cannot boot a USB drive. First, does anyone have a way I could somehow add USB drivers as a boot option (along with XP), so that I can then add Solaris and Ubuntu (making it four options at boot)? [more inside]

How do I get ubuntu to recognize my monitor's proper resolution again?

During the Ubuntu install process (text-based), it asked what screen resolutions I would like X not to include. Not thinking, I selected my preferred resolution (1280x1024, the most my monitor can handle) and hit continue. Now I can't use that resolution in my finished install, as it's not on the list in the Screen Resolutions system panel. How do I recover that possibility? Thanks!
