Upgrade from Xandros Linux

I have an EEEPc netbook that has Xandros Linux as it's OS.  The laptop doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, so I'm not able to download and install Ubuntu.  I have heard that I can put a bootable .iso file on a thumb drive to install Ubuntu.  All the threads I've found describe how to create a bootable .iso, but from a Windows OS.  How do I create, or where can I find, a bootable .iso of Ubuntu so I can install it from a thumb drive using Xandros Linux?  I really want to run Ubuntu, but it's tough to do with no disc drive from Xandros Linux.  Also, my hard drive is solid state, and I've heard that there may be special requirements for an OS to run on it.  Windows has one, but Ubuntu is way cooler to me.  Does Ubuntu have to be modified to run on an EEEPc?
