I've never used their "STUDIO" version, but since it just an Ubuntu 10.4 (based on debian) version, you should be able to use the usb-creator.exe file from your installation image.

The normal process is to make a live usb and then install it like one would do for a DVD/CD. The problem with studio is it is an installer based.

See this. http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/linux...-the-easy-way/ Read down on posts.

If not we can do it other ways.

Just format it (and wipe the mbr if needed).
You should have gparted in your ubuntu software repository.

Code:
sudo apt-get install gparted
