I wish to create a bootable Ubuntu Server flash drive. I downloaded the ISO, but all instructions I find online don't work because in this version of OS X (Lion) the ISO cannot be mounted because it is a hybrid ISO. This means I can't create a bootable flash drive using either command line or disk utility. How can I create a bootable flash drive using Mac OS X.

That doesn't work. As I stated, the os isn't able to mount the ISO due to a reuse of the same UUID across multiple partitions of the same drive. I can't use the method described on the linked website because that involves the os mounting the ISO, which it cannot. – DontTurnAround Aug 28 '12 at 4:41
