I have an Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) model DCCP847DYE.  I had a couple of SO-DIMM but I have no mSATA drive.  But I was hoping to run the unit with a USB ram stick and no mSATA drive at all.  Is this possible?  I'd put a bootable version of linux onto the USB and then hopefully we'd rock from there.  Thank you.

I made some progress.  I created a bootable USB drive with Ubuntu 12.  This did boot and gave me the options to Try Ubuntu, Install Ubuntu or Checkdisk.  What I want really is for the device to boot directly to a command line version of linux and to get an IP address from DHCP.  And it should do this from the USB if possible.  I tried to run Install Ubuntu but it didn't seem to want to install itself on the USB drive the media from where it was being installed.

Hello,

what you are looking for is a 'live system' or 'live cd'. To create one, you only need a USB stick and anther system. Then it is a matter of a few mouse clicks. Here is a tutorial:
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows

If you can choose form several distros there. If you want more choices, use LiLi:

If you do not want a desktop, ether choose a non desktop live cd or just run the live cd in runlevel 3.
To try it, edit the grub command line while booting (when the timer is counting down)  and add a '3' as last option.

The end goal is I just need to be able to ssh to this thing and be able to run
ping, ssh, traceroute, curl, telnet, arp, nmap, tcpdump from there.
