Install linux in a pendrive.

Install Linux in pen drive
Yea guys, this time I will show you how to install a Linux distribution in your pen drive. You can use this how-to install almost all the Linux distributions including Ubuntu, fedora, CentOS, Debian, KNOPPIX and much more.

What you need:
  • Universal USB Installer tool.
  • Windows XP/Vista/7 to create the USB (Win 98/2K WILL NOT Work! 
  • Fat32 Formatted Flash Drive, 
  • Your Favorite Linux ISO
And of course a PC supporting USB booting to boot from your pen drive.

You can download the Universal USB Installer tool from this link: Download USB Installer.
The Universal USB Installer is a Live Linux USB creator which allows you to choose from a list of Linux distributions and install it in your pen drive. It also allows you to download the required Linux distribution.
The process is just a piece of cake, just run the tool, select your distribution, browse to the distribution, select the flash drive and click install.
