from what i know there in no option for pendive installation, however u can
use a program called unebootin to install it on a usb drive. i suggest using
no less then 2G, i personally had problem getting it to work on a 1G but
Xubuntu was able to work on the 1G im pretty sure it had something to do
with the size (Xubuntu's iso image being smaller than Ubuntu's)
