The same way you'd do a desktop LiveUSB I imagine. What computer do you have access to at the moment which you can use to write the USB? – minerz029 Oct 25 '13 at 7:07
This depends on what system you have access to. But instructions for creating a USB from Windows, Mac or Ubuntu are here How to make a Ubuntu USB Flash Drive Installer? – Warren Hill Oct 25 '13 at 12:26

Installing the server edition from USB is not different than installing the standard desktop from USB. Use Unetbootin to prepare your USB stick from the .iso and then just boot your system from USB and install as always.
