This is much simpler under Linux (or perhaps I've been using Linux long enough that it's warped my idea of simple :P) -- just look in ubcd/tools/linux/ubcd2usb and follow the readme.

Basically:
0. partition the USB stick
1. mkfs.vfat /dev/sdX1
2. dd if=mbr.bin of=/dev/sdX
3. syslinux the USB stick (exact parameters for syslinux are in the readme)
4. boot from the USB stick


The fun part is that this procedure will also work on hard drives (which, for really warped reasons involving a difficult Windows install, you might sometimes want).

This tutorial does not clearly explain how to extract the files from the ISO file and place them in the ubcd-extract folder - you also need a program like winimage to extract the files or mount the iso as a drive using Slysoft CloneDrive which is not mentioned in the requirements.

Why not using the good and free 7-zip program?

Thanks for the heads up.

I would suggest using Rufus ( http://rufus.akeo.ie/ ). It should detect your USB drive and you just point it at the ISO. It does format the USB drive though, so back that up before creating the boot disk.

Good Luck

I am attending a Jr College and taking a degree in computer science (IT Network administration) you would think that some of the courses would tech students how to make a bootable CD & USB stick.

It seems that you're new to this forums, so:
1. Please don't make multiple posts for your questions. Some people will think this is impolite. If you're asking several questions at once, you should try editing your last post to include all your questions.

2. Winzip can open read most of the zip files. By the time you make this question, why not try opening it yourself? It wouldn't hurt.

This question is not related to UBCD, so I'll skip it.

My college experience tells me that you have to learn most of these by yourself. Most computer science courses won't teach you this 'skill'.
