Description:
Ubuntu has a great usb-creator tool that can be used to easily create
bootable install media and even reserve a second partition to use for a
/home/ in a LiveUSB environment:

This tool would be a great addition to openSUSE and could replace our
rather dangerous recommendation to use dd:

+ SUSE Studio Imagewriter should be included as part of the standard
+ openSUSE install.
