These ISO images are hybrid, i.e. suitable for writing onto both DVD media and USB Flash sticks. Use dd utility to write an image onto a USB thumbdrive (the whole device, not a partition; e.g. /dev/sdb and not /dev/sdb1).

Attention! UNetbootin and UltraISO spoil the image instead of just writing it onto a flash drive, thus not recommended.
