Eh... do I just dd that into a USB stick? I tried to loop-back mount
it as one would do with an ISO image, this didn't work.

That is what I understand about the raw image. It is an image of the
disk including the MBR. In your place, I would have dd'd the image
onto the USB and try it. It cannot do any harm.

Thank You for your answer!
- but that's what I do...use 'dd' to write the image (raw) to the USB
- I've got a 4Gbyte USB device. Just to make sure it's functional I go
"mkfs -t vfat /dev/sdb2" and so. I may then mount it and use it. The
device seems to be fine. I unmount it and go

dd if=suse.raw of=/dev/sdb2

- but this gives me:

dd: skriver til '/dev/sdb2': Ikke mere plads på enheden
(above is danish for: writing to /dev/sdb2: no more space on device)
7204+0 records in
7203+0 records out
3687936 bytes (3,7 MB) copied, 0,723217 s, 5,1 MB/s

- but wait...the raw file is a mere 1.3Gbyte.

Any ideas ?
