I just bought a netbook and I want to install Zenwalk Linux but the website offers no installer for a usb disk install, just .iso images. Is there a way to convert a .iso image to a usb flash disk image and preserve the boot sector? I have no problem extracting the iso to the flash drive, it's just getting the install to happen from there. Thanks in advance!

You may want to try this http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/, which allows you to run a Linux or windows OS .ISO from a flash drive or install it on the hard drive.
