If you already have a bootable USB stick and want to install to the
hard disk, it will depend on the distro on the stick. Ubuntu Live
versions have the Install icon on the desktop. I've never used Mint,
but maybe it has the same icon. If it doesn't, installing to the hard
disk might be complicated...
