Is there any way to 'copy' or 'export' Lubuntu to a USB-drive so I can use it on another PC without having to set it up ?

You can "clone" the installation to the USB, but it'll not work if the computers are not of one type - driver errors.

Well I guess that answers my question, For people that didn't understand I meant to 'export' an os that's already installed on my hard drive. – Kyodo Apr 26 '14 at 15:49
Actually, odds are it will work if the drive is properly set up so it would boot. More likely than not, Ubuntu will load the right modules for the new hardware. – arsaKasra Apr 26 '14 at 20:58
