2008-06-28 deragon: I already have a script written to transfer the 08.04 iso file to a USB key, for both the live CD and alternate CD. There are some problems with the alternate CD, one of them described at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/234185 If you are interested by my work, please indicate an area where I could upload my script.
