Thanks, but no good. Actually odd. I used the above method after downloading the Fedora-8-Live-i686.iso and issuing the dd command, after a few minutes I get the confirmation
dd if=Fedora-8-Live-i686.iso of=/dev/sdg
1427904+0 records in
1427904+0 records out
731086848 bytes (731 MB) copied, 350.978 s, 2.1 MB/s
After removing and booting off that I get;
Rebooot and Select propoer Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device.
Then if I use another flash device and issue
dd if=diskboot.img of=/dev/sdg
24576+0 records in
24576+0 records out
12582912 bytes (13 MB) copied, 6.50159 s, 1.9 MB/s
Reboot on that, I get the welcome to Fedora start page with the install option, but since there is no other data on there, I can't do anything more than select english. So the problem lies in the Live iso, it confirmed it copied the 731mb but some reason it doesn't boot off it!
Very very odd!
