    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
