[Mageia-dev] Suggestion: what to do with iso?

I think it would be a good idea to have clear instructions on how to
put it on a USB. I bought a netbook a couple of years ago, and I
couldn't get any distribution to install except Ubuntu Netbook
Edition, and that's not the one I wanted, so instructions on how to
get Mageia to install from USB would definitely be a good idea. In
addition, I've noticed that nowadays a lot of non-netbooks laptops
with 12" screens also ship without DVD-player so it's becoming a
bigger problem (unless you have an external DVD-drive).

Since Mageia comes from Mandriva, maybe instructions on how to create
the USB from Windows and from Mandriva (and maybe from a desktop/other
laptop install of Mageia)?
