I install a different Linux version about every 3-4 days. I want to see them all.
My favorite method is to use a flash drive. I use a small program called UNetbootin http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
to burn a bootable ISO file to the flash drive.
The ISO file I get from various locations such as torrent website, linux website etc..
I have used this method to install Linux on 17 other computers for various friends and family members as well .
It has always worked good for me without any issues.
