comment Burning Lubuntu to Dell PC
Maybe try a slower write speed? Have you verified that the md5sum of the ISO you've downloaded matches the original one? And you should be picking the PC version of the ISO if you're installing on the Dell.

@david25272, even looking at a directory listing could be a risk.

comment What is the danger of inserting and browsing an untrusted USB drive?
@EM, there was a zero-day exploit a while ago that took advantage of a vulnerability in how the icon was displayed in a shortcut file (.lnk file). Just opening the folder containing the shortcut file is enough to trigger the exploit code. A hacker could have easily put such a file on the root of the USB drive so when you open it, the exploit code would run.
