USB Bootable UBCD

Has anyone had or heard of any successful attempts on taking a USB Drive and making a bootable version of UBCD on it.

I have seen this done with some versions of Linux being booted from a USB drive.
Shouldn’t be too hard to make this work?

I could be wrong but this app doesn't seem to convert the UBCD to a bootable flash drive. Has anyone else tried to use it, or found another way of doing it?

When I attemp to do it I get the error message below;

Loading boot sector...
Initializing destination media...
Replugging USB disk...
Disk geometry parameters for target USB disk:
Cylinders = 122
MediaType = 11
TracksPerCylinder = 255
SectorsPerTrack = 63
BytesPerSector = 512

Writing files...
*** Error: Specified CD-ROM disk or image file is neither ISOLinux-based nor floppy emulation mode bootable CD-ROM; thus it cannot be converted
