not sure what you are wanting to make.

i had problems with 'liveusb-creator'.

so, i used 'UNetbootlin' to create a boot usb with sl6.3 liveDVD and,
it works great.

i partitioned a PNY 16G0 to;

   /dev/sdf1 = sl6.3 boot /
   /dev/sdf5 = ext3 for storage

works so well, i am getting another 16G0 usb stick for f18 leveDVD.
