Not exactly sure what you're asking.

It sounds like you're asking about any one of the MANY "Live" distros, that are made to boot up off removable media. There's openSUSE, Mandriva, Knoppix, and Ubuntu. If you searched, you should have come across these, amongst many others.

Try putting "ubuntu live usb" into Google...4.8 Million hits...

Do u want only kernel to be installed from usb? For that your boot should be on usb, and you need to mention at time of installation. I am not sure is that possible or not. But if you want you can work with live cd/dvd/usb of linux distros.

thnks

Follow the instructions on creating an Ubuntu Live USB distro. Boot from it. Access your hard-drive where you have the new kernel. Google for instructions on "ubuntu new kernel", and you'll come up with things like this:

https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/ubuntu/...el-baking.html

That tell you how to do it. Add the new kernel according to the instructions.
