UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD.
It runs on both Windows and Linux. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.
This is meant for people who want to install Linux but don't have a CD-R to burn, lack a CD writer, or they want to install on a computer that doesn't have a CD-ROM drive, like an ultra-portable laptop.
UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive. It can load distributions by automatically downloading their ISO (CD image) files, or by using existing ISO files, floppy/hard disk images, or kernel/initrd files, for installing other distributions.
The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:
* Ubuntu (and official derivatives)
Daily CD Images
* Linux Mint
* Arch Linux
* Damn Small Linux
* Puppy Linux
* Sabayon Linux
* Frugalware Linux
