Wondering if the pre can be used as bootable flash drive.

(Situation- Have an Asus 701 4G with xp. No optical drive & drivers for wifi must not be installed because no wirless connection icon is to be found to search for networks.)

Can I use a seperate computer to download Ubuntu ISO, install it on the Pre in Mass Storage Device Mode. Then boot my netbook from usb & install the OS?

Edit: I bought it used with no OS disk, currently have no internet to connect to. Trying to get my tether to work, but it seems impossible without access to internet or OS disk to update drivers etcc...
