BEST EASIEST INSTRUCTIONS .... AT UBUNTU LINUX.... CREATOR OF UBUNTU NETBOOK EDITION


USB memory stick
https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/installati ... mages.html
It's also possible to install from removable USB storage devices. For example a USB keychain can make a handy Ubuntu install medium that you can take with you anywhere.

The easiest way to prepare your USB memory stick is to download netboot/boot.img.gz, and use gunzip to extract the 8 MB image from that file. Write this image directly to your memory stick, which must be at least 8 MB in size. Of course this will destroy anything already on the memory stick.

There are other, more flexible ways to set up a memory stick to use the Ubuntu installer. For details, see the section called “Preparing Files for USB Memory Stick Booting”.
https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/installati ... files.html

Some BIOSes can boot USB storage directly, and some cannot. You may need to configure your BIOS to boot from a “removable drive” or even a “USB-ZIP” to get it to boot from the USB device. For helpful hints and details, see the section called “Booting from USB Memory Stick”.

IF YOU AR WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GRET PICTURE TUTORIALS FOR UBUNTU NETBOOK EDITION / CHANGES....

Ubuntu 11.04 will be Optimized for All Platforms
Techtree.com
Installing Ubuntu Linux on a netbook entailed a search for the latest version of the specially optimized netbook editions. This will be a thing of the past as Ubuntu is doing away with different optimizations of the base Ubuntu version. ...
