Automate creation of bootable Ubuntu USB Flash Drive images

Registered by Matthew Revell on 2007-07-26

This script will automate the creation of bootable X86 Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu images for 1, 2, and 4 Gb USB Flash drives every time a new version of Ubuntu is released. This is effectively a way to create new and better distribution channels for the ubuntu way of computing. While the Live CD model launched a revolution in usability for newbies, the USB Flash Drive image will go even further by improving speed and allowing for more normal computer use. Since the vast majority of persons are not technical users, every small improvement in accessibility to the ubuntu experience results in thousands of new users.
