Hi I'm very new to this...

I have a wd hd tv live.

Let's se.... I know O about linux. (have a dreambox thoug) But, I installed ubuntu, on my laptop, took a usb stick, and formatted it to ext3 fileformat.

Am I to call the usbstick something special?

I downloaded
Extracted it onto the stick. (unpacked it)
Then I plugged it into a port on the wd, and power on. It just starts normally, no new 'os' is loaded.
What is the matter?

What I want to end up with, is. Have a torrent client running, remotecontrol. and It will be with cable, no wifi.
Hope someone can help, I'm totally lost.....

In advance tnx  :)
