    Default USB help required please

    I am trying to create a USB installation of "openSUSE-11.1-GNOME-LiveCD-x86_64.iso" using winxp. I am having difficulty performing this task. I have read some tutorials but was could not get it start up.

    So what is the correct method to completing this task?

    Saying something 'doesn't work' isn't necessarily very helpful. In what way didn't it work?

    Maybe try this;

    USB Live CD - openSUSE Forums

    I have to agree that USB installs were often tricky with 11.1.

    They're not exactly the norm, so they've taken a while to catch up - but in 11.2 they work much better.

    If you don't have any luck with the suggestions above, maybe try 11.2 - it's out very soon.

    Yeah that the first one i tried.

    I also wanted to try this from a live CD but I guess I don't know where to enter the commands because when I try opening Run Command it won't run any commands.

    Those would be run in a root terminal.

    Open a terminal from the menu, then type 'su -' without the quotes. It will ask you for your password, then give you a root prompt. Be careful what you type!
