Before creating the bootable USB drive for installing Linux(assuming Ubuntu), make sure the USB drive has the FAT32 file system.

Unetbootin ( Get it here - http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ ) is a wonderful software to create one.

Follow this tutorial for Unetbootin: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/usb
