I want to install Ubuntu in my USB pen drive. My current OS is Windows 7 enterprise. I downloaded Ubuntu as zip file (using torrent) and I extracted the files to my USB pen drive. Now what should I do to run Ubuntu?

Welcome to AskUbuntu! I'd check out this answer about installing from a USB alternatively there are many other questions about installation on the site, have a look around, this question about USB installation is probably the best hope this helps. – Oyibo Dec 9 '12 at 10:11

Okay I did it.
The problem was my computer will not automatically boot from pendrive. I should press the f5 button to boot. It is usually f10 or del. I got ubuntu installed. Now I want to get my modem installed in ubuntu.
