And that's it! No more 'dd',

Well, dd is cp on steroids. There is no difference between "dd
if=image.iso of=/dev/sdX" and "cp image.iso /dev/sdX" as long as no
special alignment or block size is needed.

Ok...

Then I think we can go ahead and add this method to our wiki. The syntax is a bit easier than with dd. The danger is about the same, a mistake in the device name, PUFF!
