Short answer.
See http://www.pendrivelinux.com/




Long answer.
You need to do it one of two ways. One is you install the OS on the flash like a regular install. Almost no one seems to do that exactly. What they do is slightly different. They use a program to copy the cd/dvd to the flash drive. Some of the programs have a feature that is called persistent file or space or such. That persistent area makes it look to the user the whole system is like a regular normal install. Only the changes go into that persistent area and the rest always stays the same.

Some of the tools are fedora's liveusb creator, unetbootin, dd, and some distro's have tools on their web pages and forums.
