installing from usb

I followed the doc, to install lenny from usb.
I put the full CD1 iso in the usb

I succeed, untill the full image, it didn't search for the image in the usb, it searced elsewhere ?? or may be it searched for other type of image !!!??

I THINK that because the error is : installer image not found ??? I have the image debian.iso both in the hard disk and usb ?? the image corresponds to the installer version.!!

It would be wonderfull to have a full installer ( containing CD1 ) to put it directly on usb

thanks for help

I too am trying to do roughly the same thing as OP, except that I am using the debian-502-amd64-netinst.iso and am installing it off of a USB stick.

My issue is that when installing VIA the graphical methods, AFTER it has asked me about my language and location, it always tries to mount the CD drive and tells me to insert the CD when it does not find it.

Is there a way to force it to check the USB stick instead of the CD drive for the files it's looking for.
