installing linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit


I have a asus eee pc 4g on which I want to install linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit.iso.
I need to get it on to a usb stick, I suppose.
Can someone tell me what application to use.
Or better yet, point me to a how-to.
The only info I've been able to google is to use UNetbootin, but that seems to be for windows.
Any help would be appreciated.

Unetbootin is what I use for doing something like that, you can download versions for Windows, MacOS X and Linux on their website.
On some distributions, for example Ubuntu, you will find it in the repositories.

Sorry, but if you will be patient with me I still have difficulty creating a bootable installation sd card for linux mint.
I am using Fedora 16, which recognizes the sd card and pops up a notification asking me to open or eject it.
When I fire up Unetbootin, using the console from root, I load up the linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit.iso.
The difficulty arises when I want to point Unetbootin to the sd card.
I have two possible choices:
- USB drive with no choices as to the drive
- Hard Drive with root being the only choice as to the drive
I've tried to type the path to the sd card directly into the Drive list box but that doesn't seem to be an option.
I wanted to try executing unetbootin from the command line:
# man unetbootin
No manual entry for unetbootin
So I couldn't see the switches.
When I run Unetbootin I get the following output:
# unetbootin

You need to use the first option, USB drive only. Just do what the GUI says. Make sure that you mount the drive first. If Unetbootin says to unmount it, do that. Otherwise just wait for it to work. Ironically, I just made a live Fedora security spin on a thumb drive myself.

I was trying to create a bootable sd card.
Finally I gave up, went out and splurged twenty bucks on a half-priced 16g usb stick.
Worked great. Now to install on the eeepc.

Okay. So I boot up on the usb stick. I get linux mint running in ram.
I double click on the installation Icon.
The window opens up too big. I can't see the 'next' or 'cancel' or 'back' buttons I know must be there.
I tried to find the settings to lower screen resolution.
I tried to change the ubiquity install script. Put everything back the way it was.
No success.
Any ideas?

Used alt-clic to move the window. Hope the installed version won't give me that problem.

Installation succeeded. Yea!
Great little system. Clean.
Used package GrandR to plug in a cheap monitor I found in a thrift shop. Easy.
Removed Abiword, Gnumeric, Gimp and other heavy applications the user doesn't need.
Kept Firefox for internet and installed games.
Good little computer to bring to the cottage for those rainy afternoons.
