Ubuntu booting off a flash drive on a laptop.
I have formatted my flash drive to make it so i can boot off of it, and im putting the Linux on there. AKA Ubuntu 9.04. Has any one ever done this before? Are there thing i should be worried about? Personally i hope it works. Because then i can carry my own personal computer in my pocket. That would be pretty sweet huh?

BTW. i should probably mention i have fine specs and that im using a windows XP. I've done most of the research but i don't know how this flash drive will work.

If you burned ubuntu 9.04 to cd
you can use usb creator to put it on usb
with wor with out persistence

No need to burn disk and use usb creator. Install unetbootin, and use it to create liveusb.
