Problems with Ubuntu on Dell Inspirion Mini 10v

It came pre-installed with XP.

I managed to get ubuntu netbook edition to install but it didn't come with drivers for the 1397 Wifi card.

So I called india and they told me to get the Ubuntu 8.10 Dell Remix off of their website.
I downloaded that. It was a 2GB ISO.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to make this ISO bootable on my flash drive. It's a 4GB flash drive so space is no concern.

Can anyone help?

I used the Ubuntu customization Kit and the Desktop 9.1 version and everything just worked. (Dell Mini 9) The customization kit lets you remaster a live-CD and send it to a flash drive.
