Put Kubuntu on a Flash Drive from Windows

Put Kubuntu on a Flash Drive using Windows: Kubuntu is a fork of Ubuntu, offered by Canonical Ltd, that utilizes a KDE desktop environment. KDE is often preferred over Gnome for it's visual appearance and Windows familiar functionality. In the following tutorial, we cover a simple way to install Kubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" or Kubuntu 10.10 " Maverick Meerkat" to a USB Flash Drive using Windows and our Universal USB Installer. Once finished, your Flash Drive will act as a Live Kubuntu USB, that could be used in place of a Live CD (Persistence is optional).
