Default OT? copy live ubuntu iso image to usb for boot

Hi,

OK, I guess this would be unacceptable to ask in an Ubuntu mailing list
and I was trying to get help with a Fedora iso but since F15 has been
pushed back to be nice to mirrors because another distribution is
releasing just before the original date, I thought I would try my luck.

I am a loyal Fedora user but I have to install a Ubuntu live from an
ISO. So, with Fedora, I know what to do. Download the live iso image
and copy to usb using the following command:

sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr Fedora-14-x86_64-Live-LXDE.iso /dev/sdc

and everything goes through fine, with a bootable iso image created in
the process.

But when I try the following:


sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr xubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64.iso /dev/sdc

I get:

Verifying image...

The media check is complete, the result is: NA.

No checksum information available, unable to verify media.
Are you SURE you want to continue?

This filesystem will be automatically checked every 36 mounts or

xubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64.iso uses initrd.img w/o install.img
Copying DVD image to USB stick
Updating boot config file
Installing boot loader
/media/usbdev.g7vFg6/syslinux is device /dev/sdc1
USB stick set up as live image!



Which is actually far less output and an useless (in terms of live or
install) iso on the usb. It is however recognized as a iso, but nothing
more useful than that.

Any suggestions on how to do this with Fedora? I prefer commandline
approaches.

Many thanks and best wishes,
Ranjan
