So I have usb-creator installed and I have used it before to make USB-bootable Linux drives.

The problem I am having is that I have a Damn Small Linux ISO and I want to put it on the drive to boot from (then install it to the computer) but when I click "OTHER" to select an ISO file and I select the DSL ISO it doesn't use it.

Is there a space requirement that the USB Creator uses? It seems to work fine with ISO's of 600MB or more...

I'm not sure but it seems to work only with ubuntu ISOs. Maybe on purpose. Recently I tried to create bootable usb stick from openSUSE ISO using the ubuntu startup disc creator, when I selected the ISO it didn't display it in the appropriate box.
But worked as supposed to with Lucid ISO.

I understand that usb-creator only works with the 'buntu tribe.
Try unetbootin, it works with DSL or check the DSL site for installing on a thumbdrive, I think they have a tool built in.
