It depends on what your host OS is. If you're on Windows, you can use unetbootin. If you're on Linux, there's other tools available that will differ depending on your distribution.

1. Download your chosen ISO file, noting the path to where it was downloaded (i.e. /home/username/Downloads/)

2. Insert your USB stick and learn how it is recognized by the system, To do so, enter the command:

sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb* (or eliminate "sudo" if entering as root)


This should produce output along the lines of:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2010-03-15 22:54 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-_USB_DISK_2.0_077508380189-0:0
-> ../../sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-03-15 22:54 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-_USB_DISK_2.0_077508380189-0:0-
part1 -> ../../sdb1


3. Unmount the usb stick (NOTE: replace the X in sdX with whatever was returned in the first line
from command above)

sudo umount /dev/sdX


4. Use this command to write (as root) the image iso to your USB stick:

dd if=/path/to/your/distro.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync



You should now have a bootable USB stick of your chosen Operating System.
