    Read this:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromUSBStick

    I don't know if this startup disc creator is included in 6.06, but I doubt it is, which is why you will more than likely need to use dd (which can be dangerous if you don't double check your commands).

    See this link, that describes how to use dd (and the risks if you make a typing error) Howto make USB boot drives

    Assuming that the input iso file is 'xubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso' the dd command would be

    Code:
    dd if=xubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso bs=4096 of=/dev/sdx
    where x at the end should be replaced by the actual drive letter for the USB drive, as checked with for example

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -lu
    or
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    if that command existed in 6.06
