How to make a bootable USB for Mac under Linux.


I'm trying to create a bootable usb under Linux that will allow me to reinstall Mac OS X on my MacBook Air.

I have formatted the usb drive as hfs+ using gParted. I've also made the volume bootable. I'm not sure if it will work though.

Now I need to find a way of putting the dmg file onto the usb. Is it just a case of drag & drop?

Or is there a tool I can use to transfer the dmg to usb under Linux?

Kind regards,
