can it be done?
is there a reason why it has to be ubuntu? there are already usb-stick distros.
But yes, you can make a live-stick version of ubuntu.
i've got the live cd ISO but cant seem to get it to boot. might have to download a usb specific one.
only trying to do this as i have no CD's, and i cant for the life of me boot from the mounted image.
There's an Ubuntu package that makes it possible to use a USB drive as the main boot drive. I suspect it's a situation where you have to install Ubuntu conventionally, download the package, then image the HDD onto the USB drive.
might want to check this out:
list of flash drive bootable linux distros
this one is good too
