I put the live, 4GB, USB in my computer, but it fails to boot. It just brings up a message saying "F1 to retry, F2 For setup" (I have a dell dimension 2400). I installed 7-Zip and made the .iso run off that, but it STILL wont work! Whats going on and how do I fix it?

You actually have to create a bootable USB, and not just unzip it to the USB. Take a look at my answer Here, on how to create a bootable USB, or CD/DVD. –  Mitch Jun 11 '13 at 14:57
