Whenever I want to try a new Linux distribution, I download the .iso image from the distributions website and write this to my USB flash drive using the dd command. Anything on the USB flash drive before this gets wiped.
Ventoy allows you to create a multi boot USB for your .iso images. Once set up you simply copy the .iso file and this is added to your existing .iso images on your USB flash drive.
When you boot from your USB flash drive, Ventoy displays a list of .iso images to boot from.
This is especially handy is wish to keep other .iso images on your USB flash drive. I like to keep a copy of DBAN - Darik's Boot and Nuke for wiping old hard drives and other media.
The first thing to do is visit the Ventoy website, and down the latest .iso file
Next plug in your USB flash drive and enter the following command to find the path to your device by entering the following command in the terminal.
