How to install Fedora-12?

I don't know anything about USB sticks.
But my experience on booting f11 installed on an external USB drive
may help you:
In my case my BIOS does not recognize the USB drive at all.
What I had to do was put the kernel (vmlinuz and initrd.img)
somewhere on my internal hdisks.
In my case I put them on sdb1 (I have 2 internal scsi hdisks),
referenced then in grub.conf as "root (hd1,0)"
For my f11 install,
I downloaded the f11 iso somewhere onto my internal hdisks,
and did a hard disk install to the USB disk.
The presence of the external USB, causes the scsi disks to be reordered
to sdb, sdc with the USB seen as sda for the anaconda installer.
This disk reordering does not extend to the above "root (hd1,0)":
I had to leave that just as if the USB disk is not connected
( because my BIOS doesn't see the USB disk).
This works. Of course you are then tied to an install
with the root fs on USB, and the kernel on internal hdisk.
