In most cases you can use dd to do that from the standard install iso.

eg:


Code:
dd if=linux_iso.iso of=/dev/sda

Where linux_iso.iso and /dev/sda are the paths to the iso and usb device.

Download the Linux iso and Unetbootin.
UNetbootin allows for the installation of various Linux/BSD distributions to a partition or bootable flash drive.
You can use this flash drive to install Linux without using any CD.
Before booting, select the flash drive as first HDD in BIOS.
Download and instructions here.
