I was thinking in making a bootable USB key for the installation.
I read:
There is instruction about creating partitions and install the .iso on one
of them and make it bootable. The example is with a single partition:
su -c "livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr   
Fedora-17-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso /dev/sdX"

I am surprise taht we could not make the same on a specific partition by
making it bootable, like we do on a usual hardrive.
UNetbootin or liveusb-creator do not seem to have this option.

Am I wrong?
