THis question is a supplement to: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Desktops/PCs/Q_23769242.html.   I was following the steps to build an ubuntu pen-drive.  based on the site:  http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2007/09/21/usb-ubuntu-704-persistent-install/

These are the steps I'm following:
1.  Create a folder named USBU on your computer [Done]
2.  Download ub7convert.zip and extract the files to the USBU folder [Done]
3.  Move the Ubuntu 7.04 ISO downloaded earlier to the USBU folder [Done]
4.  Click fixu.bat from the USBU folder (follow on screen instructions) [Done]
5.  Move all files from the ubuntu directory to your memory stick [Error]
    [There isn't a ubuntu 'directory'.  Step 5 created a single 1KB file called ubuntu.]  When I try to boot to this I get a missing vmlinuz error.  What's going wrong here?]

6.  Reboot your computer and set your system BIOS to boot from USB-HDD or USB-ZIP. Or, if your 7.  system lists the USB device as a hard drive, set the "Hard Disk Boot Priority" to boot your USB device.

7.  Congratulations, you should now be booting into USB Ubuntu 7.04!
