Unetbootin is designed to that and it has a version for windows. See the link below:

If you like Slackware, how about Salix? The live CD iso can be put on USB from Windows without any need for Unetbootin.

It wasnt for me, it was for a friend who is interested in Linux, I wanted to give him an easy to use distro and he has a low end computer. Unetbootin did what I was looking for. Thanks guys

I would consider any of the pendrivelinux.com how-to's. Since wattos is basically a derivative it should work fine as a live cd to usb with persistence.

You can also (if you are careful) just install the OS from the cd to your usb as if it were a real hard drive. When I say be careful I mean you need to read some stuff instead of just clicking OK. Best if you remove power to your hard drive if you are not sure then you can't install to it.
