    is there a reason why it has to be ubuntu? there are already usb-stick distros.

    But yes, you can make a live-stick version of ubuntu.

    i've got the live cd ISO but cant seem to get it to boot. might have to download a usb specific one.

    only trying to do this as i have no CD's, and i cant for the life of me boot from the mounted image.

    There's an Ubuntu package that makes it possible to use a USB drive as the main boot drive. I suspect it's a situation where you have to install Ubuntu conventionally, download the package, then image the HDD onto the USB drive.
