UNetbootin is a utility allowing you to create a live, bootable Linux Distro such as Ubuntu, Redhat, Fedora, Debian, etc without having to waste a CD. It can turn a USB drive with sufficient space. The program can run on Windows XP/Vista, Windows 7, Linux and Mac OS X. It loads distros from ISO images you've downloaded from a particular site and those that you've created yourself.
Usage is simple and with Windows, you can grab an ISO, select a target drive and once done, reboot. From there, you can now run your Linux distrubition and boot from it. Make sure your BIOS settings are configured to try booting from a USB drive when present.
It works by extracting an ISO file to the USB drive and creates the proper syslinux config making your distro bootable.
UNetbootin is now available in several languages.
The list of supported Linux distributions is long, but some of the most popular are Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS (and RHEL), BSD flavours and Gentoo.
