Format a stick to FAT32.
I use gparted and set a boot flag.
Mount stick with thunar
Check on which /dev stick is mounted with "mount" command.
Not needed if gparted is used. It tells which device.
As root on terminal give command: "syslinux /dev/sdc1" if stick is mounted on
As root open program "mc", go to downloaded *.iso file and click on it to open.
On other panel of "mc" open stick like /media/something.
There one finds a file ldlinux.sys created with command "syslinux /dev/sdc1"
Now copy all the files from the opened *.iso file to this directory on the
Go to /media/something and rename directory ./isolinux to ./syslinux. Open
directory syslinux and rename all isolinux.* files to syslinux.*.
In same directory edit file iso.sort and change all isolinux to syslinux.
That's all. Reboot and set your BIOS to boot from stick, have stick inserted
and you can install now from USB Stick.
I do not know if this will work with a live version.
I did this with
