So I have some good news, I figured out how to boot from my USB stick. Now I want to do a full install of ubuntu on my stick. Its a 16GB Kingston Traveler and I have gathered by some of the looking and the comments that are made on here that I need to have at least a 8GB stick. When I tried to install, I had 3 choices that all said dev/sda and they all have different sizes with them. I know that I had about 15GB's left on my drive so I'm assuming that would've been the right one to use, but at the bottom of the dialog box there was something else that had my HDD in it. If you need more info, tomorrow when I get a chance to I can take a picture with my phone and repost with all of the info.
