A bootable USB stick with Linux

So, I sold my Asus Eee PC to my brother Tor Inge a while ago, because I wasn't using it much.

I had installed Linux on it, so it had Windows XP and Ubuntu.

Well, the machine crashed in some way, and required a reinstall of XP. After some fiddling I found that partition 3 had an XP reinstall set of files, and using it didn't work (maybe because of repartitioning the PC to use Linux as well).

Well, I searched a bit and found

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ - a great tool to setup a USB stick as a bootable device. I'm currently installing Puppy Linux.

And on a related note; pendrivelinux.com sucks, it seems more like an advertisement trap than something that can help you get install bootable Linux on a USB stick.
