Keep in mind that the lifetime of your USB stick will be shorter. A USB stick is not a hard drive. But if you install Ubuntu in a USB stick you will not feel any difference! –  DrKenobi Jan 22 '11 at 13:00

You are welcome to use USB stick for Ubuntu boot.

Just jump here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Choose the latest stable or the LTS, then the architecture, then download.

Follow the guide written here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows

usb installer

You are done!

if you have a liveCD you can run it and form it you can make it to usb faster without install any extra thing on your windows.

from ubuntu liveCD go to: System> Administration> startup disk creator.

be careful to do not format your hard drive by mistake ;)
