    i'm trying to install ubuntu on my 2 gig flash drive and the installer hangs at 15 percent and wont properly install on the drive. i've tried installing it on 2 separate flash drives with the same problems, any ideas ?? i would just repartition the hdd but I'm running vista on my laptop and don't want to deal with the hassle to dual boot.

    dual boot is simple with ubuntu (does most of it automatically). I have a feeling it may be the drive is too small

    According to the hardware requirements, 2Gb is the bare minimum needed for installation.
    You may just need a bigger flash drive.

    At 480mbps don't expect stellar performance. IMHO you're better off installing Puppy or DSL-N.
