so you want me to download another iso image, for no reason? but i already have one. why would i download their image?

What does it matter? It's a free download anyways. Anyway I'm not going to fuel this type of discussion further. I'm more interested in seeing if making a WinISO bootable via USB than arguing semantics.

Sorry. I didn't mean to mislead you with my last command.

Code:
dd if=<path of your ISO file> of=<path to your unmounted USB device> bs=2048 count=17
So if you're using the downloaded ISO file. And if your device is /dev/sdd (look for the device in parted or gparted).

So here is a sample command of what you would want to formulate in your terminal.

Code:
dd if=./xpsp3_5512.080413-2113_usa_x86fre_spcd.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=2048 count=17
I think I'm gonna follow onebuck on this one after this final post.

Look up gparted and parted. Using one of those two utilities are the easiest way. You may need to install them through synaptic or whatever depending on what distro you're using.

Whenever you dd a device you must run the command as root or an admin.
Code:
sudo dd if=./xpsp3_5512.080413-2113_usa_x86fre_spcd.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=2048 count=17

You "burned" the ISO image to your USB stick. More precisely you bit banged it.

Depends on how your distro handles it. Normally no, and all of your data on the USB disk is destroyed because the binary image is written over the filesystem.

Some distros will recognize it as a readonly cd though.
