Instaling portable Ubuntu Linux on USB Flash Drive


After reading some download documentations, I'm still confused on how to install Ubuntu Linux onto a USB Flash Drive so that it is portable and not connected to a single computer. Help please?

Well if you mean you need a flash drive that will be used to boot Ubuntu in Live mode, then it should be easy. Download Ubuntu iso image. download Unetbootin and then use this tool to make your flash drive bootable. Else if you have Ubuntu installed or have a live cd, boot from it and there is an option in System > Administration > USB startup disk creator.
Use it. Just simple steps.
