6.4. Direct Installation

You can add liveinst or textinst as a boot loader option to perform a direct installation without booting up the live CD/DVD.

6.4.1. USB Booting

Another way to use these Live images is to put them on a USB stick. To do this, install the livecd-tools package from the development repository. Then, run the livecd-iso-to-disk script:
/usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk /path/to/live.iso /dev/sdb1
Replace /dev/sdb1 with the partition where you want to put the image.
This is not a destructive process; any data you currently have on your USB stick is preserved.
