HOWTO Install Ubuntu 8.10 to a USB Device - 12-31-2008, 05:53 PM
I used this guide to install Ubuntu 8.10 to my MicroSD USB Reader. I used a Sandisk 8GB Class 4 and I see no speed difference when compared to my Ubuntu install on the SSD. The guide was written for Ubuntu 8.04, but works perfect with Ubuntu 8.10 as well.
I previously had Ubuntu installed via Wubi and it was taking up valuable hard space. This install allows me to dual boot on my Mini and also to have a portable version of Ubuntu without even touching the internal SSD.
