Do you want to install onto USB, or do you want to install from USB?

If you want to install from USB, you could download the memstick image and write to USB stick (raw device) with dd.


includes a memstick image,


or you can stay with 9.1_RELEASE if you prefer, but get the memstick.img instead of disc1.iso .

I have never used Ubuntu, but dd should be a standard part of most any Linux distro.
