I'd like to create a live USB stick on a Mac so I can install Ubuntu on another machine. How do accomplish this?
Taken from here:
You can do it really easily with unetbootin which is available for Mac OS - the upside being it doesn't need more than a few clicks on a simple GUI.
(note this is only for newer Intel Mac's, and won't work with older PowerPC machines unfortunately.)
Insert your USB drive.
Make UNetbootin executable from file properties.
Now click in Diskimage. Give the path of downloaded ubuntu iso.
Then select your pen drive from list. Then press ok. Wait until finish. After that you are able to boot or install Ubuntu from that pen-drive.
You could try following the instructions on ubuntu.com.
Additionally, you could try looking at some of these links for help:
You can use the Linux USB Creator. The Linux USB Creator for Mac has been released. This is the easiest way to create a live linux USB on a mac.
For more information on the Linux USB creator, just visit the Website
The other option is to use UNetbootin.
If your Mac is a G4 or G5 take a look at this.
