It's always good to have this kind of documentation, that we can
provide on the download page for after use.

Related docs:
 * http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Draklive#Building_a_live_CD_or_live_USB
 * http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Installing_Mandriva_Linux#Installation_from_a_USB_stick
 * maybe others I didn't find

about this, but no equivalent doc on our side for now (in Wiki or website).

So someone to write an article about this is welcome.

Note that Ubuntu does something quite nice as well about this (the
"show me how" thing):
