Default Installing Ubuntu.

I'm looking to install Ubuntu on an external drive. Is there anything I need to do, before I proceed? I've looked up google, and such, but I see so many articles giving me different answers.

Default Re: Installing Ubuntu.

I decided I would try this out, without much help, and using a tutorial. I have a few 2GB USB Pen Drives, so I figured I would use them. I get the drive formatted, and ready, but as soon as I start copying, it says there's not enough space. The tutorial used a 1GB drive, and was successful, but my 2GB doesn't have enough space? I completely formatted the drive inside of Windows using Paragon Partition Manager Server Edition 8.5. I formatted to FAT16. I ran the LiveCD, got the drive formatted for Linux, and once copying started (using the command "cp -rfv casper dists install pics pool preseed .disk isolinux/* md5sum.txt README.diskdefines install/mt86plus /media/ubuntu810"), it will pause, and I see that the drive is being accessed, but then I get :

Any idea why I am getting this, with using a 2GB drive, but the tutorial uses either a 1GB or 2GB pen drive?

Tutorial being used : Ubuntu 8.10 Persistent Flash Drive install from Live CD | USB Pen Drive Linux

Getting stuck at step 16.
