How do I install Ubuntu?
What's the right terminology for Unity's UI elements?

I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04.1 through a usb stick following the instructions (which ones?) but I am stuck at the second step because I do not know what dash is to search for the Startup Disk Creator.

Could someone explain to me what Dash is and how can I find it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Welcome to AskUbuntu. Dash is the 1st button (by default) of the Unity Sidebar on your left (which has many application launchers). By pressing that button, you get access to a nice interface which is very similar (in purpose) to what the windows start menu is.

As for the program you want to run, you can find it here: enter image description here
