    I have installed ubuntu 10.04 multiple times and the problem still persists:

    Whenever i select the flash drive from the refit menu, windows xp boots, and when I hold the alt/option at startup the flash drive doesnt even show up. It doesnt even show up in the system preferences for startup disk.

    It boots fine from the cd but I want to use a flash drive...What do I do?
