USB installation of Fedora-17

I wonder if anyone has successfully installed Fedora-17 through a USB stick?
I tried two ways - with the DVD iso, and with the KDE Live CD iso -
on two machines, and met the same problem in all 4 cases:
only half-a-dozen modules were listed by lsmod,
and these did not include the ethernet or WiFi drivers.
I believe that this was due to a grub2 problem,
though I'm not sure about that.
In both cases lspci saw the hardware devices,
but they did not appear in /etc/udev/rules.d/ .

It's possible there was a problem with my USB stick,
though there was said to be a check in all cases.
(I had checksum-med both ISOs.)

I managed to install Fedora-17 on both machines
with netinstall.iso on a CD .
This went perfectly, after a couple of silly messages about floppies.
