How do I install Ubuntu 9.10 from USB on mac. I got a friend to set up the flashdrive, but when I start my mac and go to the boot screen the flashdrive doesn't appear. Do I need to change a setting?

I recently bough a 16gb SDHC card and installed Ubuntu on it but couldn't boot it.
I thought I could install grub on my hp flashdrive to boot off my SDHC card.
But couldn't figure it out so anyone know how to boot off a SDHC card if it doesn't apear in your BIOS' boot menu?
Fedora 17 GNOME is installed on my Asus 1015PX netbook. Today, my flashdrive started autorunning when I inserted it into an USB port. GNOME ceased asking if I want to open the flashdrive. The flashdrive automatically opens.
I fear a rootkit infected my flashdrive. Anyone know of a live CD with clamtk with GUI I can boot to to scan my flashdrive? Parted Magic CD has clam but without a GUI.
I recently downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a flashdrive to try Linux out and installed the file and used the universal USB installer to install that file onto my flashdrive. After changing the boot sequence on my laptop, I got a screen asking me for what language I wanted so I clicked English, but after that it just gave be a black screen and I can type stuff on it.
I have an NT desktop I want to continue to use but do not want to be exposed to security issues after April 8. I've read I can boot the computer from a flashdrive with a Linux based OS installed on it and use the internet off the flashdrive while keeping the desktop safe. Will Ubuntu work for this? If so how big of a flashdrive will I need? Thanks.
awhile ago an asus notebook of ours crashed completely. one day i went to turn it on, and system32 was completely missing. this is probably because of a virus, but anyway, at the time it was running windows XP.
I have a very simple question, a buddy of mine was running ubuntu 13.04 off of his flashdrive on my pc. I have a 8gb PNY FlashDrive and it is bootable. My question is, would it be okay to install ubuntu onto that without any lag issue or anything, because there was some lag on the live cd?
Thanks rebornmechanics ! I will download onto Flashdrive... I formatted my laptop last night and want to install Crunchbang on it using a Flashdrive. I guess I have to tell my laptop to boot from the Flashdrive. This is the first time I've done this.. hope it works.Dan
Install your linux distro in a flash drive and boot from it without going to the hassels of creating a boot cd. If you like to install your favourite distro on a flashdrive so that you could take it everywhere you go with unetbootin.
