I am looking to run one of my computers on Crunchbang Linux, but I cannot seem to be able to find a way to create a live USB of it.

Creating LiveUSB of every .iso image works in the same way.

You may find this link useful:

I have already tried to use the second link you gave me, but it created an Oracle VM thingy, which my computer cannot support... – fr00ty_l00ps Sep 13 '12 at 16:53
How a simple tool that writes ISO image to the disk could have created an 'Oracle VM'? Download the iso image of #! and use one of the many tools available to put it onto the USB stick. – Paweł Rumian Sep 13 '12 at 17:35
Okay, gotcha, thanks :) – fr00ty_l00ps Sep 14 '12 at 17:58

Get UNetbootin from your package manager/software-center if you're already running Linux:

  1. Open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install unetbootin for Debian and other Debian-based systems such as Ubuntu.
    - drop "sudo" if you are running as root.

  2. Type unetbootin in the terminal to launch.

  3. You can then use the second option to find and load onto the usb your downloaded .iso of CrunchBang etc.

Works for most distros. I believe it doesn't work for Arch.
