Yes you may. You can use it as storage space to share files between other systems.

Some LQ members are having a similar discussion in the Downloading Linux to flash drive thread. It looks like a few folks are just getting started with this project at about the same time! Admittedly, in that thread, I could have been more clear on the specific point you're raising here, or refrained from commenting where I had little experience to contribute with.

I understand that you are likely limited to using recent distribution versions for such a purpose and may favor Ubuntu as a candidate, but just so you know some have found version 8.10 of Ubuntu to be less than stable in their experience. It might be worth reading the thread I'm in love just to have a frame of reference.

Do you want to install both flavours of *buntu on your memory stick? In the absence of someone posting that it works, give it a try. The installs will/should detect the presence of another op/sys and make the required grub adjustments to enable booting between the two.
