You can use ISO Recorder to burn thaty ISO file to a bootable CD/DVD or USB key.

Thanks Doc, But using Zorin Lite OS I can not run .exe files as they are treated as non executable. I found a few others before ISO Recorder which I also could not use. Mikey

Oops, guess I was assuming you might have a Windows computer available. Sorry about that. Hopefully someone else with some much better ideas to try will be along soon.

just to note, it will ask you if you want to install ubuntu on the whole drive or share it with zorin so there will not be any uninstalling :-)

Bassfisher6522 I tried to use Rufas, but it also comes as an .exe file which I also downloaded, but my Zorin Lite OS does not recognize as an executable file since it does not come from them. There was a long explanation about how to change permissions to allow it to become executable, however I could not understand it at all. I thank you gents, Doc., bassfisher6522, and sobeit for your help, but for now I am still stuck. Oh, and sobeit I had already read that, but am grateful that I at least found something out on my own that was correct.
