I'm trying to copy a USB stick that I purchased that's supposed to contain a bootable desktop with a bunch of applications like firefox, openoffice, etc. The USB stick somehow actually contains two devices. One has a vfat filesystem and the other appears to be NTFS.
Installing from a hard drive requires some work. Do you have a USB stick at hand? You could easily create a bootable USB stick with the Crunchbang ISO on it and install from that media. If you are using Windows, try the LinuxLive Installer (lili) -- when you are Linux user already, use the dd tool to copy the (hybrid) ISO to the stick.
I have An Acer Aspire 1362 Laptop with AMD Sompron 2800+ processor and only 256MB RAM, with Windows XP installed. I have downloaded Lubuntu-12.04-alternate-i386.iso and installed it to a 16GB USB stick. I do not want to install Lubuntu on my hard drive (yet!).
I have got the USB stick to boot, and am working my way through the menu.
