Bootable USB drives have become the most commonly used method of installing computer software and for making Linux Iso To USB. USB drives have become more popular and cheaper now also easy to store and strong from surface damage that caused a disk not to load after sometime. CD/DVD drives have gone obsolete and thats the reason we prefer to use USB drives instead of CD or DVD to install a new system.  UNetbootin is one of many utilities available which can do this job of creating a bootable drive.
