You can use wubi and put the wubi install on the USB device, or you can make a persistent USB boot device from windows and boot that way.

I have written up an instructional on how to do this here:

Use the "Full persistent Ubuntu installation" instructions for 11.04.

Be careful at installing Grub MBR on external drive, and not internal one.

Can you help with this problem?
