Can I Use A Flash Drive Instead Of An SD Card?

I have tons of flash drives ranging from 2 GB to 8 GB but only a couple SD cards and none over 32 MB. My question is this. Can I use a flash drive instead of an SD card on my Wii  to run the Homebrew Browser and USB loader and any other software that would normally be run from an SD in a softmodded Wii?

To do the initial softmod, you have to have an SD card.  After you get homebrew channel and all that installed, HBC does support loading apps from a USB drive instead of an SD card, however, my experience says that not all Wii Homebrew supports being run this way.  Your best bet is probably to install a USB loader for games that installs as a channel directly into the Wii rather than running from the SD card.
