I want to try out Linux Mint. I am on Ubuntu 11.10 now. How can I mount .iso file on USB? And also, will my other files disappear in USB when I mount it? Thank you.
You can also try UNetBootin which should install the .iso and everything up for you.
(Although like the previous answer, your other files will be wiped)
The simplest way to create a Linux install disk (on USB) is to use the 'Startup Disk Creator" application.
Just click on Dash icon (top left), and type startup (then click on icon).
Note: This will overwrite (and erase) any files already on the USB drive. You should use a spare USB stick of 2GB or 4GB capacity.
Yes, your files will disappear from your USB because you are reformatting your drive. I'm sure Linux Mint has instructions for installing there ISO on to the USB, but it'll be more hands on.
Here is a how-to that should work for you.
