Feature #310029, revision 6
Title: Provide link to instructions for placing live CD on USB on main
download page

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jimmy Berry (boombatower)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
The live CDs on http://software.opensuse.org reference the fact that
they can be placed on a USB instead of a CD, but there does not appear
to be a link to any instructions on how to do so. I think adding a link
to something like  http://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick
(http://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick)  would be
an excellent addition.

Use Case:
Users who wish to try out SUSE and don't want to burn a CD don't have
to go fishing around and googling about how to place on USB.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Easier to get ahold of suse and make use of the feature
allowing it to be placed on USB drive.

I actually looked for that myself a week or so ago.  Was surprised the
link wasn't already there.

current URL is now
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Live_USB_stick

Seems like a really simple thing to implement, any chance we can
attract those with the ability to do so?

+ There is a Getting Help box on software.o.o (on the right). It contains
+ a link Installation Guides. It will take you to the wiki and there you
+ can select USB Installation. So the feature is somehow done. I'm not
+ saying it cannot be done in a better way.
