We are using the New Dell Mini 9 Netbooks. These do not come with a CD/DVD ROM drive. I have a large flash drive, but need to know how to put UBUNTU.iso onto a flash drive. I tried simply copying and pasting it over, but then when I booted from the Flash Drive, I get an error message on the screen.

BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

If you have access to anothe ubuntu machine, you can make a bootable flash drive with the ubuntu application: System->Administration->Create an USB startup disk

oklit: Thanks I will definitely look into this.

fmarzocca: I put a CD with Ubuntu and loaded off of it. But, I cannot find Create USB startup disk under System -> Administration. Maybe because I did not install Ubuntu on my HD, but am running it off a CD?
Am I doing something wrong?

Installed Ubuntu, but still don't see anywhere under Administration to create a USB startup disk.

sudo usb-creator

If you don't have, just install with synaptic
