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.

Well, maybe. What exactly do you want to do with it?
The instructions at Microsoft for creating a usb of your windows 7 dvd is all tasks that linux can do.
To make a sort of windows pe such as BartsPE or VistaPE from linux could be done but I doubt anyone bothered to attempt it.
To be clear, Microsoft doesn't support making a live usb for any other use than to install or repair a windows computer.
What exactly do you want to do with it?
Because I have been trying for weeks to set up a vpn tunnel and do not seem to be able to do so at this time. I have been trying to come up with a work around to my problem. Before I joined the Linux family. Life was fine, and Windows 7 permitted me to use Hide My Ass VPN any time I wanted to watch a movie at Netflix. Because all VPN provider have downloads for Windows and not Linux. I have considered dumping Zorin from my computer and installing Windows 7. I have installed Windows 7 in VMbox but it had a hard time maintaining the VPN connection. Of coruse that was two Ubuntu installs ago LOL! It looks like the only option I have is to clone my current Ubuntu to a usb stick. Wipe my hard drive. Install windowns. Re-install Ubuntu. So what do you think? Is there a work around?
Oh! I was trying to load windows on to a live USB so I did not have to install window on my machine.
