Add USB support + alternate drive to software sources.

This would be for Update Manager or any similar programs. There is an option to add CD-ROM as a source but for me it didn't work as I have two drives and it doesn't see the second drive (my DVD drive) + CD-ROM drive isn't applicable anyways as most Linux install discs are DVDs anyways. Additionally an option to pull files from a USB flash drive where you have a Linux distro image mounted would be useful.

I think that there might be a program out there by now that could fix that, but I'm not sure. Have you tried adding a usb drive? Hmm, maby a patch might work?
