Do you mean:  ?
Then I wanted to make some changes.
Is this correct:
my key is mounted as suggested, then I created:
and I put in this directory:
Fedora-18-x86_64-DVD.iso  initrd.img  vmlinuz
and keep:
extlinux.conf ldlinux.sys menu.c32
in /mnt/flash

append initrd=initrd.img lang=en_US.UTF-8 repo=hd:UUID=myuuid:/Fedora_18_live

Thank for your help
