Flash Drives, thumb drives, USB drives are generally not fast enough to run Mac OS X in a reasonably satisfying fashion.
If you really mean a SATA Sold State Drive, it installs the same as on any other internal drive.
If this does not address your question, you need to pose a question that is focused on exactly the issues you are encountering.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

To my knowledge Os x does not support booting from USB media. This may only apply to USB 2.0 and down.
You can install and boot from an external Firewire drive. When running the installer, select the firewire drive from the list of possible install locations and continue.
To boot from firewire, hold option at startup and select the external drive from the list of drives.

USB on Intel Macs has always supported booting, that is what MacBook users have had to deal with. With a Mac Pro you have four internal drive bays, Firewire, and all of those are more suited and capable.
