"Last month we looked at the much-improved version of BulletProofX, which provides several end-user options when the X Server fails to start properly instead of just dropping them to a terminal. On top of this Canonical improvement in Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" there is the USB startup disk creator as well as a System Cleanser application. While the System Cleanser isn't the focus of this article, the system-cleaner-gtk program will simply show the user what Debian packages have been installed following the installation of Ubuntu. The focus of this USB start-up disk creator is to take a Linux CD or ISO image and convert it to run off a USB disk drive. This application, which is named usb-creator, is also able to setup the USB drive to offer persistent storage capabilities."
