Would you like to try a new or different distribution of Linux? Have a couple of spare USB storage devices laying around the desk drawer?  Then you can create your own bootable USB stick to give that distribution a test drive!

Check out the instructions: How to Create a Bootable USB Drive on Linux

Particularly pay attention to the steps to determine the path for your USB drive using the command

$ df -aTh

Tips:  Before you plug in the USB drive, run the above command.  Make a note of the drives found. Plug in the USB and rerun the command.  The new drive found will be your USB stick.

Using the dd command is destructive!  It will wipe out any data on the target USB drive, so be certain you don't have anything on the drive you need to keep. Not mentioned in the above tutorial, you most likely will need to run the command with 'sudo' to have elevated permissions. For example:

  $ sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/your/iso.file of=/dev/sdc1 && sync

Also of note, the dd command does not have a progress indicator.  So, you will need to patient since writing an iso image to USB can be a little slow.
