Installing the latest linux.

I have come to the conclusion that there is no computer geek that can help me put what I want onto my Dell D610 Latitude.

Currently, I have a version of Puredyne that my brother(the most computer-geek person I know) installed while trying to put Linux Mint on my computer(idk how that happened), but I want the latest version of Linux. I downloaded the file "ubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386.iso" from ubuntu.com, which is the latest Linux I believe, and put it onto a 2G usb drive, though I just clicked and dragged it into the drive's file, which I think is incorrect. I could not find a "usb creator" program for this flash drive to make it able to boot to my laptop, and when I try to boot from the flash drive as is, it "could not find the kernel image: linux". I have tried to make this work several times to no avail, and I'm not sure what to do. If someone could give me very detailed, explicit instructions detailing every little baby step that will get linux onto my flash drive, and installed onto my laptop, it would be much appreciated. Assume you're explaining this to a child who's good at reading, because that's essentially as much knowledge as I have anymore, except a little accumulated knowledge about the terminal thing. I am done with trying to google the answer because no one is detailed enough and I get confused. Please and thank you!
