Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You'll have to provide more information. First of all, what version of Ubuntu are you trying to install. How are you trying to install it? You mention flash drive. Are you trying to install FROM that or ONTO that? I guess you'll have to tell us a lot more then what you did to let us help you. Also, Ubuntu, at least the latest versions, will be a bit (very) bloated and heavy to run on that system. You'd better get something like Puppy or DSL to install on there.
I have made a startup disk of ubuntu 10.04 on a Kingston Data Traveller and trying to install the OS on old system. I have 10 systems in office & am successful installing Ubuntu 10.04 on three new systems with out any problem. I am successful installing the same OS using the same method on another IBM with same configuration. But this is an assembled old system. I have getting an error "Could not find kernel image: linux". Also tried the command /isolinux/vmlinux initrd=/isolinux/initrd.img. Thanks.
