Usb drive bootable?
 
I have a 512 MB usb key and I would like to install a Linux Live CD on to it. However when I download it, it comes as a .iso file. I am currently looking at Morphix and Berry Linux. How would I make the drive bootable? When I start up the computer I see an option for usb drives. However, how do I put a .iso file onto a drive? Thanks for the help

There are some useful links and documentation here: http://www.knoppix.net/docs/index.php/FaqUSBBased

I think you need to use the dd command. For the output file name, use the device rather than the partition.
