I downloaded the program and clicked on the option to download it to a usb drive but once downloaded it prompted that I burn it to a CD but my netbook doesn't have a CD-ROM. Suggestions?

What's 'the program'? If its Ubuntu, and you would like to make a usb installer, go to and have a look at step two. – cosmorogers Jan 21 '12 at 17:46

You missed a step on the Download page Select 'USB stick' and your current OS in step 2, then hit the 'Show me how' button.
