comment Are there differences between installing Linux from USB or CD?
You're getting confused on what the tools do. Both dd and UNetbootin extract ISO files to the target disk/USB. That extract delineation is key. As I said in my first comment, if you just copied the ISO file to the USB/CD, the system wouldn't boot. Using dd and UNetbootin will do that extraction of the ISO contents for you. UNetbootin gives you the ability to acquire ISO's you don't already have, set up a persistent USB drive such that data is preserved across reboots, auto-select the USB drive, and other user-friendly features that make it preferable to some users/situations.

@MarcusWhybrow Sounds good. Sorry to hear you're still having issues, hopefully it isn't causing any issues using the thing.

comment Mount NFS as remote user
This question neither addresses the specifics of connecting to an NFS server nor addressing the permissions issues in the question.

Unetbootin sets up the USB to be a bootable disk by configuring the master boot record, creating partitions, and a handful of other things. If you just copied the ISO file on to the USB, the computer would have no idea how to boot from it. This same operation is done by your ISO CD burning program in the background. There's some overall information on the process at aaltonen.co/2004/03/01/tip-boot-from-usb-key-addendum
