For some variants of Linux, UNetbootin does this without any extra configuration or work.

"You can use the dd command to ""burn"" an ISO image to a USB drive from the command line:

dd if=file.iso of=/dev/sdb

Change /dev/sdb to the mount point of the USB drive.

Be careful, as this will destroy the original contents of the USB drive.

Additionally, if the ISO is bootable (such as in installer image) then the USB drive will boot the same way."
