Running an operating system, like Windows, off of your flash drive can be very useful sometimes. You can recover your data from a hard drive and copy it to an external hard drive if that computer won't boot up or scan that computer for viruses and so on... This Instructable will show you how to install, boot, and run the popular Linux distro, Ubuntu
from your flash drive. You will be able to automatically save your changes and settings back to the flash drive and restore them on each boot using a second partition.
You can run Ubuntu will all your settings and files, even if you don't have your own computer with you. You will have a whole, powerful operating system in your pocket!
Sorry for the not very helpful pictures. It was to hard to document each little step for each step. Hopefully it is still easy to follow...
I'm not liable for any damage done to your computer and/or flash drive. However, I haven't ever had a problem. Just make sure to follow each step carefully
*This process is no longer needed as of Ubuntu 8.10 because a USB Ubuntu Creator is built in.
