I have an r32 and I'm trying to boot from a pendrive to start Ubuntu. I used the Ubuntu creator to make a bootable pendrive. When I press F12 and choose "usb external drive" it boots into windows xp. So far I changed the setting allowing usb to run as "a" drive but it still boots into xp. The Ubuntu live cd boots up fine.

Welcome to the forum!
R32, like any other ThinkPad from that generation (A31/p, T30) will NOT boot from a pendrive.
It WILL boot from a conventional USB CD-ROM or FDD.
Hope this helps.
