Install Fedora 8 from USB stick


I need to install F8 on a computer that has the only removable media type, USB flash card. Could you tell me how to perform this?

I can't use external DVD/CD drive, nor I can use network installation, all I have is large USB stick.

Here at this link are instructions to install to/from usb stick:

I have used it to install F8 and F9 as long as your computer can boot from usb it will be fairly easy.

Thanks, I followed similar instructions. In short:

1. I have created bootable USB from Fedora 8 Live CD image, also copied contents of Packages directory from F8 DVD installation disk onto the same USB stick.
2. I have created a single partition for '/' filesystem, no swap partition (otherwise, if the standard F8 partitioning is used, it leaves but 400 Mb after the installation is finished).
3. All the rest went pretty easy, I followed instructions from Fedora 8 on ASUS eeePC when in doubt.

After I have installed OpenOffice, it still has 1Gb of free space, and I haven't yet removed unnecessary packages.
