If you want the easiest, simplest answer, download a usb bootable distro.

If not, why don't you try google before asking and waiting- my search took all of two seconds, and gave me:

http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-knoppix-510/
http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/USB_Based_FAQ
http://www.howudune.com/2007/04/how-...b-flash-drive/

Easy, eh?

Hey bro, my LSAKUSB ( http://multidistro.com/downloads/und.../under1gb.html )

has alot of KNOPPIX cousins- ( http://multidistro.proboards.com/ind...hread=7&page=1 )

If your on a Windows system it's easiest to use "fixkp2.exe"
here ( http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-knoppix-510/ ) as jamescondron said, it's easy.

If on a Linux system try Unetbootin or Fusbi.
