I've been searching for awhile on how to do this on a usb stick, but I've had no luck in doing so, what I'm trying to do is install Debian 6 on my laptop with a usbstick, but I can't seem to figure out how to do so.

1. Burn the .ISO to the thumb stick with a program like http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

2. Go into your BIOS and raise the boot priority for the USB drive to #1

3. Restart your PC and let it boot into Debian.

4. Select Install and follow directions.

5. PROFIT???

This instructions are for a PC, if you have an Mac ignore this

- Use UNetBootin to make your usb stick a bootable Debian live usb stick. Link: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net (This software is very easy and straightforward to use)
- Configure your pc bios to boot from the usb stick
- Plug your usb stick in your computer and restart it
- If you see something about Debian or Linux in your computer, it means it worked, just follow the instalation instructions
