The wanted page [[Web page]] of openSUSE wiki is completed

It is nice to be enthusiastic as you are, but transcribing random
Wikipedia pages to our wiki takes effort and doesn't bring much. That is
already written there, and link is all that you need to refer reader to
them, so you can use your energy for something else.
If you want something to do please take instructions in this link:
and make wiki page mentioned in this email:
As a title use "Creating bootable USB from LiveCD iso"
Don't forget to put warning that all data on USB stick will be erased
after LiveCD iso is copied to it. For warning you can use one of warning
For this purpose I would use Warning2.
More templates you can find on:
Thanks in advance.
I am once again sorry for the wikipedia copy thing,as i was unaware of
it.But i want to concentrate more on wiki ,so now i'll gather
information from reference books ,other sources which are reliable then
i'll upload to the wiki,
It was not about quality or reliability of Wikipedia articles, it was just
what I said, if there is article on Wikipedia that describes topic and you are
satisfied with it and want to use it as reference, then just link it in your
article, and if you want to be precise as Wikipedia, then you can list it in
Why is that better?
1) It saves you work,
2) there is only one place where reference article exist (Wikipedia) and it is
easier to maintain it; only on Wikipedia, instead on Wikipedia and openSUSE
3) general computer topics like PCI-X or CD & DVD does not exactly belong to
openSUSE wiki, which should be about, well, openSUSE (community, distribution,
openSUSE as Linux, hardware used under openSUSE, programs running under
openSUSE, and so on)
Here is a practical example how it should be done.
If you see few articles that are asking for CD&DVD then just go to those
articles and add link to Wikipedia article. That way instead day, or two spent
on transcription and after that regularly going to wikipedia, check for
changes, and update article on openSUSE wiki, you can in a single day solve
10-20 articles that are asking for such general terms.
Thanks once again or your help and support.
You are welcome.
