Are you on windows?
If yes, there is a nice program called linux live usb creator, that does everything automatically for you, when you google it it should be like the first link.

what exactly are you trying to do? if you just want a live boot, then unetbootin should work wonderfully for you. if you are trying to install to a usb drive, then just do it the same way you would to a hard disk and change things around in your /etc/fstab to mount in RAM if you want to speed things up and not wear out your flash as quickly.

EDIT:
or are you trying to move an existing installation to a usb drive? if so, dd is your friend (although not if the source is larger than can fit on the flash drive.

Should the topic be moved in General calculator help to prevent confusion? I thought it was a computer question myself rather than a calc one.

Unless he meant a wi-fi stick and said flash drive instead.

But wi-fi sticks aren't supported yet. And you can't communicate with a wi-fi stick using a flash drive driver.
