SOURCE: Booting from a USB Stick

Here you go:

Download the Ubuntu Live ISO (if you dont have it already) and burn it to CD
Restart your computer (booting from the Ubuntu Live CD)
Insert a 1GB or larger USB flash drive
Open a terminal window and type sudo su
Now type fdisk -l to list available drives/partitions (note which device is your flash drive Example: /dev/sdb). Throughout this tutorial, replace all instances of x with your flash drive letter. For example, if your flash drive is sdb, replace x with b.
Type umount /dev/sdx1
Type fdisk /dev/sdx 
type p to show the existing partition and d to delete it
type p again to show any remaining partitions (if partitions exist, repeat the previous step)
type n to make a new partition
type p for primary partition 
type 1 to make this the first partition
hit enter to use the default 1st cylinder
type +750M to set the partition size
type a to make this partition active
type 1 to select partition 1
type t to change the partition filesystem
type 6 to select the fat16 file system
type n to make another new partition
type p for primary partition 
type 2 to make this the second partition
hit enter to use the default cylinder
hit enter again to use the default last cylinder
type w to write the new partition table
Type umount /dev/sdx1 to unmount the partition
Type mkfs.vfat -F 16 -n usb /dev/sdx1 to format the first partition

"Alternately you can try mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n usb /dev/sdx1 (doesn't always work)"
Type umount /dev/sdx2 to ensure the partition is unmounted
Type mkfs.ext2 -b 4096 -L casper-rw /dev/sdx2 to format the second partition
Remove and Re-insert your flash drive
Back at the terminal, type sudo apt-get install syslinux mtools
Type syslinux -sf /dev/sdx1
Restart your computer, remove the CD and boot back into Windows

Using Windows to prepare and move the files to the USB Stick:
Create a folder named USB on your computer
Download UBconvert.zip using this link - http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/UBconvert.zip
Now, extract the files to the USB folder
Move the Ubuntu  ISO downloaded earlier to the USB folder
Click fixu.bat from the USB folder (follow on screen instructions)
Move all files from the ubuntu directory to your memory stick
Reboot your computer and set your system BIOS to boot from USB-HDD or USB-ZIP. Also set the "Hard Disk Boot Priority" if necessary.

You should now be booting into Ubuntu Linux from your USB drive!

SOURCE: Hi i have a samsung NP-Q1 tablet pc.

Yeah! You can. As far as I know, third party software Windows Login Recovery is used to reset forgotten windows password and the windows password reset file can be stored in a USB flash drive.

SOURCE: My Archos 101 tablet's full sized USB port doesn't

This seems to be a widespread problem with the Archos 101 tablet. There have been 2 firmware updates since the problem was first reported, and neither seems to have fixed the issue for anybody, which strongly suggests that it is a hardware issue, in which case you'll need to do an RMA. I recommend contacting the retailer you purchased through so you can get a replacement unit or a refund.
