switching to ubuntu


I am currently running on suse enterprise desktop 10 and would like to make the move to ubuntu 8.04. But heres my situation:


1) my acpid daemon is not working
2) I might have a corrupt library(xauth)
3) i dont have a cd drive

i hear you can do it using a flash drive. Would my current situation affect making the switch? thanks
