Can I run Ubuntu Linux DIRECTLY from a flashdrive?
I want to download Ubuntu Linux onto a flashdrive, and then be able to plug that into a computer(running Windows XP) and run off of Linux from the flashdrive. Can I do this? As in, I plug the flashdrive into the computer, then restart it. After it reboots, it starts up in Ubuntu, then just runs on Ubuntu like it would on a computer that normally runs on it. But instead of using the computer's hard drive, it stores on the flashdrive. Then, when I'm done, I can shut down the computer, unplug the flashdrive, and then when I boot the computer back up, it runs off of Windows XP like it normally would, like nothing happened. How would I do this? Is there a special distro of Linux I would have to do this on, or would it work just normally on Ubuntu? I would prefer not to partition the hard drive.
