Or you might be able to do it with unetbootin:

Hi guys, i know this may seem stupid to you both but i have downloaded the program from the link you supplied at http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

But when i go to my Download folder and click on the program i get an error? Where do i go from here please

Are you installing (or wanting to) from Linux or Windows? That pendrivelinux one is for use on Windows only.

I have an oldish computer which doesn't have an OS installed on it at the moment. I do run "Live CD's" on the computer in question with out any problems. I did manage (i think), to install a Linux distro onto the pendrive but when i went into the BIOS the only BOOT options available were:

Floppy Group
Hard Drive Group
CD-ROM Group
NetworkBoot Group

Does this mean i won't be able to use the Pen drive?

Looks like it, yeah. Why not install on a CD-ROM?

You may be able to boot from USB using PLOP: http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html#intro

I have not tried it personally; I find that burning a CD is simple and foolproof for my needs. :)

Aw well back to the drawing board lol. Looks like i'll have to stick to using Live CD's then, lol. Thanks for the help though. Bye

Did you click the link and read about PLOP? :(
