can't "boot" fedora 10 LIVE x86_64, slipstreamed onto USB stick with liveusb-creator 3.6.3

GRUB menu loads, choosing BOOT or VERIFY AND BOOT

booting begins
three lines are booting (fedora starts booting with some loading lines white/blue)
after DOS screen shows me my ethernet connections, like "100mb , full duplex, link ready"

and on this step booting stops or stucks, display shows the same

When you installed Netbootcd/Billix to your USB-did you install syslinux too?
"syslinux -s /dev/sdxx" where "xx" is your USB (sdf1/sde1/sdb1,etc)
I am going to try both Billix/Netbootcd and try to install Fedora10 either to my vbox or my HD.
The .bat files in Billix are to operate DSL through Qemu in Windows so you don't have to reboot.

yesterday night i've tried install it via internet.
i've slipstreamed Fedora 10 x86_64 NetInstal on my 4gb USB stick
booted from it and chose install via URL , entered path for install.img on some server
AND INSTALLATION BEGUN (in text mode(dos mode whatever)). after reboot initial config started ...everything ok , but on the finish it asked me choose services for sys startup. i left everything by default and finished configuration . after rebut FEDORA STARTED buuuut in CONSOLE Mode (text), i gave command startx... but nothing .... error were showed " unable load initx, or missing initx " (smthing like this)

have i had enable all services ??????? i dunno what services were there. i'm novice.. it was my first text setup, actually like Win Setup .. i thought it would be some like black screen and i should input commands

lets create normal Guide for Billix.... i saw only one billix review on utube, and some text review.
real novice guide
because when i reading ur or other how tos, it's like a lil mess for me.U know to many times copy paste copy paste copy paste . do u know word "tautology", so its bad.

windows/linux guide for billix for couple distros like fedora/ubuntu


1 download
2 extract to usb
3 edit config or boot menu or mirros
4 take syslinux from original disto image (i don't know for what do i need syslinux, i read that is booting config for distro)
5 place it on usb as well
6 make usb bootable (and what if i can press F8 during boot, and USB will boot, is it ok ?)
7 boot.

i would like create vid for utube, like noob for noobs. with all credits and co-authors
