Bug Description

Binary package hint: usb-creator

  Last week i try the latest Fedora 15 Alpha, i'm looked in the Fedora site how create a USB Live disk and i'm very surprising that i must simple use this command:

$ dd if=path/image_name.iso of=device

So, i downloaded the Live CD image and run DD, boot from USB and i get Fedora up and running, simple just like that. So i try use it with Ubuntu Live CD image, but it doesn't work.

Will be nice have this working with Ubuntu Live CD images, because can't using VirtualMachines to test things like 3D, wireless, etc and i don't want waste CD's with every milestone.

I confirm this bug. Ιt's quite annoying since no one can easily create live usb images.
Cd images should be dd compliant.
