"But what if your computer doesn't have a working CD drive? Well, no problem. Ubuntu Live can also boot and install itself from an USB thumb drive or an SD card (henceforth, for simplicity's sake, "USB drive"). All you need is a drive that is 1GB or bigger.

"Problem is, not everybody can use the famous liveusb program to create bootable live USB drives. Some of us are using Fedora on our workstations. Others might actually want to run Knoppix or another live distribution, not Ubuntu. Yet others might not like the way liveusb partitions the disk space in your USB drive, or might want extra functionality not provided by it."
