USB disks are at DISK.SYS. I tried to rename it to _isk.sys and amend txtsetup.sif accordingly. This failed, disk.sys is hardcoded and used in other drivers, I did not go further.
Probably also setup.hiv and .inf files need to be amended...
You can try renaming other drivers, i.e. ATAPI.SYS->ZTAPI.SYS, just for the sake of checking?
I don't think it will work, as an ATA/IDE drive will be both under ATAPI.SYS and DISK.SYS.....

Buffalo RUF2-R2G USB stick, Windows 7 x64, xcopy-ing I386 folder only, from XP SP3 from a folder on the internal hard disk, 5878 small files, 375MB total. Default cluster size for 2GB partition, tests repeated several times with format before each.
NTFS - 572.22 seconds
FAT16 - 169.17 seconds
FAT32 - 171.19 seconds
Quite slow Apacer 4GB stick:
NTFS - 696.48
FAT16 - 818.19
FAT32 - 903.17
Optimize for performance/removal doesn't seem to make any sugnificant difference in each case.
