One thing you could try on another system is:

You may also find this interesting - it gives you someone else's

As was pointed out, you can also put just the install image on the
USB stick, and do a network install. This is my preferred method
with the DVD image on a local server. For F8 it is
/images/bootdisk.img and for F9 is is /images/efidisk.img. (Both
relative to the DVD root directory.) I have not used the F9 version
yet, but I have built a bootable USB stick with the F9 live CD.

I hope this helps.
