    Whats the best way to boot kubuntu onto my mbp. I have a 4gb usb drive and the .iso file on my mac.

    Any tutorials would be appreciated!

    I don't think there is a way of doing this currently. Booting from USB on Linux currently needs you to make a BIOS change and Macs use EFI instead of BIOS.

    More info on the Ubuntu forums here.
