I use 'remastersys' to make iso images for some of my vbox installs. It is not
part of Debians repositories but they support Debian, has a sources.list entry
I have just discovered 'UNetbootin', :
"UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and
other Linux distributions" . It is in Debians repos.
Maybe put the two together.
A short cut to go from vbox to usb would be nice.
btw, systemrescuecd has a script located in the root of their iso, installs
systemrescuecd to a usb drive in one operation. I am not a coder but maybe it is
generic enough to adopt for other iso's.
