UNetbootin. Search for it in the software center. Easy way to make bootable USB.

+1 for Unetbootin (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/), I've been using it for two years or so without any problem to put create Ubuntu LiveUSBs. Works on Linux and Windows.

The problem with Unetbootin is that it doesn't support persistence (unless there is some big changes lately)so for my purpose it is pretty useless. I wish people would point that out before they recommend it enthusiastically to new users.

If OP uses Lucid he could simply use the startup disk creator to make a Maverick usb with persistence (I created a Maverick live usb with 3 G's of persistence using sdu so I can say for sure that it works)

If he uses other Linux distros he may want to check out multiboot
http://liveusb.info/dotclear/ (the actual program interface is in English, guess that depends on where you download it)

If he uses windows, this looks like an awesome tool. http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

(http://www.linuxliveusb.com/) Maverick is supported.

There are many better alternatives to unetbootin unless you only want to create a faster version of the live CD (no writing back)

If I understand correctly, the OP just wants to install Ubuntu from a USB pendrive, not to one.

Unetbootin is the easiest-to-use program that I know does just that.

OP didn't say he wants persistence. He just doesn't want to burn the .iso to a CD.

If you don't want persistence, unetbootin is excellent. It's my utility of choice when I want to make a bootable flash drive.
