Bug#413598: installation-guide-i386: ISO image on USB stick (section 4.4.3) incomplete ?

Jean-Marc Ranger-2
Package: installation-guide-i386
Severity: normal


Following instructions that were available about one month ago at http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s04.html I
successfully managed to create a bootable USB stick.  However, I never managed to get the installer "see" the ISO image on the stick.
Tons of possible causes (wrong kernel image, wrong initrd, mis-configured file on stick, ...) - is it possible to add more details to
that section ?  I ended burning the ISO to CD, which worked.

I'm available to beta-test any patch.

Since that section has seen an overhaul since Etch due to the switch to
iso-hybrid images, this bug seems no longer appropriate.
Thus closing.
