One thing worth checking - make sure that your stick is un-mounted at the
time you write the liveusb files to it. I have been bitten by that in the
past - there is no error message but the files don't get written to the
stick unless it is umounted.
I use the method at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD/USBHowTo
