"Linux runs great on netbooks, but unfortunately most of them come without an optical drive of any kind which can make it a challenge to install an operating system on them. Unless you have an external DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive to connect to them, the ideal solution would be to boot from a USB stick.

"Since most modern computers, if not all of them, permit booting from a USB device, this makes for a simple solution. Not only that, USB devices can be used multiple times, unlike the DVD you burn an ISO to and use a handful of times.

"Fedora makes it very easy to create a bootable USB stick with the Live USB Creator tool. You can use an existing Fedora installation, and probably any other Linux distribution, to run the tool. There is even a Windows application to allow for creating a Fedora-based bootable USB stick as well."
