This is from the readme_en.txt file in the xampp\ directory of the 1.5.3a zip file. This same instruction set is in the xampp\ directory of this old version 1.4.13. So I wonder why your file does not have this QUICK INSTALLATION close to the top of the file?
QUICK INSTALLATION:

[Step 1: Unpack the package to your usb stick or a partition of your choice.
There it must be on the highest level like E:\ or W:\. It will
build E:\xampp or W:\xampp or something like this. Please do not
use the "setup_xampp.bat" for an USB stick installation!]

Step 1: Unpack the package into a directory of your choice. Please start the
"setup_xampp.bat" and beginning the installation. Note: XAMPP makes no
entries in the windows registry and no settings for the system variables.

Step 2: If installation ends successfully, start the Apache 2 with
"apache_start".bat", MySQL with "mysql_start".bat". Stop the MySQL
Server with "mysql_stop.bat". For shutdown the Apache HTTPD, only
close the Apache Command (CMD).

Step 3: Start your browser and type http://127.0.0.1 or
http://localhost in the location bar. You should see our pre-made
start page with certain examples and test screens.

Step 4: PHP (with mod_php, as *.php, *.php4, *.php3, *.phtml), Perl
by default with *.cgi, SSI with *.shtml are all located in
=> \xampp\htdocs\.
Beispiele (Examples):
=> \xampp\htdocs\test.php => http://localhost/test.php
=> \xampp\myhome\test.php => http://localhost/myhome/test.php

Step 5: XAMPP UNINSTALL? Simply remove the "xampp" Directory.
But before please shutdown the apache and mysql.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Also you are best using the zipped version of XAMPP as opposed to the exe installation version. The zipped XAMPP Lite 1.5.3a version can also be used if the USB Stick has size limitations.

If you understand German the wiki has some info with regard to USB Stick installation under the XAMPP menu item.
