Default Making a VIA ARTiGO

So I wanted a small, silent (REALLY silent) PC so I decided to look into the ARTiGO kit (for those of you do know it's this). Everything looks great, especially with the Pico psu. I'm gonna add to it a 256 or 512 RAM and a 16gb or 32 gb flash drive to boot Xubuntu on it.

Problem is, how am I gonna get Xubuntu on it in the first place? External CD drive might work, but I don't have one and I'm don't feel like dropping $50-$100 on something I'll use once.

Anyone have any ideas? You guys can make comments on my system too if you find anything you want me to know.

Case: Thermaltech Tsunami
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 2800+
Mobo: DFI LanParty UT nf3 250gb
Memory: 1 gb G.Skill PC3200
HD: 74gb WD Raptor/120gb WD Caviar/500gb WD Caviar
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS/XT

Default Re: Making a VIA ARTiGO

You can install Windows and linux onto a flash drive without using a cd-rom, it's pretty easy. I don't know how to do it for Linux, though, but I'm sure some one who knows it better can link you the right stuff.
