"Boot error" using UNetBootin to create bootable USB drive
I am trying to create a bootable USB stick with Ubuntu, KUbuntu or Fedora on it. I have a desktop running windows XP, one running ubuntu, and one with a blank harddrive that was formatted to ext2.
Whenever I use UNetbootin on either the ubuntu machine or windows and try to boot from the USB stick, I get "Boot error".
I have tried downloading the .iso, letting UNetbootin download the .iso, booting a number of different machines with the USB stick and never get passed the "Boot error".
I managed to get puppy linux to boot into the rc.sysinit script but then it lost the keyboard and mouse and could not continue.
Anybody seen this? Any advice?
