Burn the ISO on the SD card (bootable) for Eeepc
  

hello,

i own a eeepc, without CD, I would like to know if there is a software or command line "universal", to put any image on an ISO SDCard. (Bootable or not for that matter)

Indeed, there are specific softwares for ubuntu and fedora for example, to copy the iso of these distributions on memory cards. (I could install Debian easily )

against by not putting the iso gag on a sd card obliged to sacrifice a cd to burn 700 MB 4MB and use an external cd drive, the boat.

so please suggest me better way..thank you

I know that Ubuntu has utility to create bootable USB drive,I think may be a mistake, but dd or cat> it is not enough also might be gag apparently is not supported ... But it seems to work with smart boot manager.

Re: Burn the ISO on the SD card (bootable) for Eeepc

you need cd drive so try external cd drive or borrow it from your friend

The following process will enable you to create a Boot CD that can be used to Boot Ubuntu 8.10 from a USB Flash drive on systems that do not natively support booting from USB.

1. Insert the Ubuntu 8.10 Live CD and restart your computer, booting from the CD
2. Open a Terminal and type mkdir -p ubcd/boot/grub
3. Type cp /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/stage2_eltorito ubcd/boot/grub
4. Type gedit ubcd/boot/grub/menu.lst
5. Add the following information to your menu.lst file and save it to ubcd/boot/grub

title Run Ubuntu 8.10 from USB DISK
root (cd)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper noprompt cdrom-detect/try-usb=true persistent quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.gz
boot

6. Type cp /cdrom/casper/initrd.gz ~/ubcd/boot
7. Type cp /cdrom/casper/vmlinuz ~/ubcd/boot
8. Type mkisofs -R -b boot/grub/stage2_eltorito -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o usbcd.iso ubcd
9. Burn the usbcd.iso to a CD
