Ubuntu has a feature to turn any CD/DVD or .ISO image into a bootable 
USB key: "System, Administration, USB Startup Disk Creator". It's the 
easiest solution for any Live CD image. I've used it to create a Debian 
install USB, as well as working installations of Mint and Ubuntu Lucid 
Lynx -- the Creator provides persistent storage on the USB key so that 
settings and documents are preserved between sessions.
