UNetbootin free allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file...

It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you've already downloaded.

UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive:
It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you've already downloaded.

Using UNetbootin:
Select an ISO file or a distribution to download, select a target drive (USB Drive or Hard Disk), then reboot once done. If your USB drive doesn't show up, reformat it as FAT32.

If you used the "USB Drive" install mode: After rebooting, boot from the USB drive. On PCs, this usually involves pressing a button such as Esc or F12 immediately after you turn on your computer, while on Macs, you should hold the Option key before OSX boots.

Supported Distributions:
UNetbootin has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:
Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Debian, openSUSE, Arch Linux, Damn Small Linux, SliTaz, Linux Mint, Zenwalk, Slax, Elive, CentOS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, 3CX, Fedora, PCLinuxOS, Sabayon Linux, Gentoo, MEPIS, LinuxConsole, Frugalware Linux, xPUD, Puppy Linux.

UNetbootin can also be used to load various system utilities, including:
Parted Magic, SystemRescueCD, Super Grub Disk, Dr.Web Antivirus, F-Secure Rescue CD, Kaspersky Rescue Disk, Backtrack, Ophcrack, NTPasswd, Gujin, Smart Boot Manager, FreeDOS.

Installing Other Distributions Using UNetbootin:
Download and run UNetbootin, then select the "disk image" option and supply it with an ISO (CD image).

UNetbootin doesn't use distribution-specific rules for making your live USB drive, so most Linux ISO files should load correctly using this option. However, not all distributions support booting from USB, and some others require extra boot options or other modifications before they can boot from USB drives, so these ISO files will not work as-is. Also, ISO files for non-Linux operating systems have a different boot mechanism, so don't expect them to work either.
