Is is possible to download an iso image then copy to flash drive? What distro would be capable to do this.

Thanks

Puppy Linux can do this, though it is a little more involved than most people think, mainly because you have to write a boot sector to the flash drive. The big problem I've seen is that many BIOSes claim to boot from USB devices but few actually do. Google "flash drive linux" and see what pops up. I've done this with Puppy, BTW.
