Linux Fedora 14 Linux on USB using liveusb-creator using Windows XP


Trying to create a bootable Linux application on a USB flash drive using the liveusb-creator. PC being use has Windows XP (Service Pack-3) OS. Research on web implies that version of syslinux file with liveusb-creator is not compatible with creating a bootable application at this time. Downloaded new version of syslinux-4.02.zip file but not sure how to make it current version for use when liveusg-creator is run. Tried to extract new syslinux file tusong windows explorer but no luck.
Question: Suggestions/recommendations for creating a bootable Fedora 14 Linux application on a USB flash drive that works.

Usually have to wait until a version is fixed. Might be able to update the loader manually.

This app has been fixed. Read down on the page. https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/
