I want to put ubuntu 12.10 on a Sandisk Cruzer 4gb USB flash drive, and then plug in the flash drive to my dell dimension 3000 so I can boot off the flash drive and install ubuntu. How do I do this? Help me.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I have a dell dimension 3000 as well and here's how I did mine, I downloaded the ISO an then downloaded pen drive linux I chose the ISO on pen drive linux and said that it was ubuntu 12.10 then I told it to write it to the usb directory. Once it was done I restarted my pc and when it says dell press f12 and then boot from usb. Afterwards once its booted click install and then follow the prompts from there.

I hope this helped.
