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: http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/08/13/cliced-hybrids/
and make wiki page mentioned in this email: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-web/2009-09/msg00002.html
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 templates: http://en.opensuse.org/Template:Warning http://en.opensuse.org/Template:Warning1 http://en.opensuse.org/Template:Warning2 http://en.opensuse.org/Template:Warning3 For this purpose I would use Warning2.
More templates you can find on: http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Template_Messages
Thanks in advance.
Hello Rajko, 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 section "References".
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 wiki, 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.
