Mmn, that didn't work. I dd'd the latest Fedora Live iso onto a USB

it bootable using fdisk or some such?
Not that I recall - a simple dd of the iso onto a usb stick just works
some USB sticks don't seem to like to be boot devices, and I've never
figured out why. Sandisk stuff generally seems to work, and most all
my current USB sticks are Sandisk Ultra Fit (the really tiny ones,
typically in 16GB or 32GB).
I've had excellent luck with the 16 GB Mushkin atom - and they are fast
too, really fast, I suspect some USB 3 thumb drives are really only USB
2 and there will eventually be a lawsuit. But the Mushkin are really fast.
