i perfectly agree with you and currently see two ways to achieve this:

a) make usb-creator understand img-images. they seem not too delighted, see bug 361032
b) ship a iso version of netbook remix -- i dont see why this is not done already anyways...

I couldn't agree more.

I think it would be a good idea too either support Ubuntu Netbook Remix .img image files in the Ubuntu Usb-Creator or release Ubuntu Netbook Remix .iso images thereby making them supported.

It would make it a lot easier getting the UNR image on a Usb-stick.

But my bugreport against Usb-Creator was maked as invalid , bug 361032 , that leaves the iso image as the only solution left so far.

i'd suggest to unmark the other report as duplicate and reopen it, then wait for someone to mark it as wishlist priority and finally fix it :)

In unetbootin if you choose Diskimage=floppy it works :)

This would be a feature request for UNetbootin, and should requested separately from bugs against USB-Creator. This isn't a bug in the Ubuntu Netbook Remix, so I'm marking that invalid. A feature request for this functionality has already been made against USB-Creator here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/usb-creator/+bug/361032
