Sparky not so quick or easy for me!

I have just tried for several hours to create a live ISO usb of Sparky Linux. I was keen to get a trial of this distro after reading how quick, easy to install and light it was. Perfect for my project to dual boot with xp. Oh dear - not one single live usb creator could handle Sparky. So much for easy! Does anyone know of any USB creator that can do the job? YUMI and Rufus no go.

the answer to that question is usually found on the distro's web pages.
also further installation instructions.
