Burn your CD or create a USB drive
- tick USB & Ubuntu
- click "Show me how"
Nothing there indicates that you need to have Maverick already installed
to do it.

Perhaps what you were thinking is this:
Common Desktop Applications
    * It is not possible to create Ubuntu 10.04 USB disks from the
Startup Disk Creator in Ubuntu 10.10 due to a backwards incompatibility
in the syslinux program.

That, I think, is a different issue.

@Marcelino: have a look through here & see if you can find a related bug:
(enter 'usb' in the search box)
If not, then
