Hello, I have google this with no success. I know there are a few Linux guys here, so I thought I'd post and see if anyone could help. I have decided to try Ubuntu on an old laptop. I went to the site, then tried to put Ubuntu on a jump drive. It appears that I am required to download and burn the .iso file first, then I can put it on a thumb drive. Is this correct? I tried a program that said it would write to a jump drive for me, but it also appeared to need to "see" the .iso file. Since my CD player is acting up, this need for the actual file is presenting a headache! Thank you in advance, Jim Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
