Please spell and write clearly, it helps other understand what you're trying to say.

This http://www.simonf.com/usb/ is one link of many you can find on Google, with step-by-step instructions on how to do what you're trying to do. You don't say what version/distro you're trying to install, or what your real goal is, so it's hard to give you specific help.

Be sure the machine you're trying to build has the ability to boot from a USB drive, or you won't be able to boot from USB, no matter what OS is on it.
