Default Install Ubuntu Linux from USB

I needed to install Ubuntu again after my failed adventures with another distro, so I took the opportunity to work out an even easier way to do this. Essentially, the configuration files shouldn’t need to be edited at all as Syslinux now supports directories and the FAT32 file system - but they’re just boring technical details. All you need ot know is that there are fewer steps, and the process is easier to follow.

Oh, one more thing… I forgot to mention last time that this method also works with Edubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu, as well as most other Ubuntu-based distros and even some other distributions too. It won’t hurt to give it a try, and I’m happy to help anyone out who wants to give it a go. I tried these with the Slackware-based Zenwalk, for example, and it went without a hitch.

Will come in handy to install to old laptops which no longer have a working optical drive; you can create a fancy picture frame for €100 and less
