I want to put dreamlinux on my old laptop. The cd drive on that laptop does not work. So I want it to boot from a usb stick.

what should I put on the USB stick so it will boot dream linux from it?

I have downloaded the dreamlinux iso. should i just put the iso on the usb drive?

Dreamlinux provides a tutorial on installing to a pen drive.

Since your drive does not work, you can use the ISO with a virtual machine to boot it live within your current environment, then use Pen-DLI to put it on your USB. You can use VirtualBox to create the virtual machine.
