Ubuntu on USB drive?

589 13
I'm looking to put a build of ubuntu on my 4GB flash drive so i can use the school computers without taking 20minutes to log into the network.

Found this guide, would it work or is there an easier way? I don't need/want an install option, just for it to boot into ubuntu.

Yeah, OOo is a dog even at version 3. I would look at Abiword for a text editor.

Repped you all, many thanks.
Pendrive or DSL or Puppy will all load really quickly. Heck, for how small they are, just use all three.
