I don't believe you'll be able to create a bootable USB Flash drive using dd, because CDs apparently don't use "boot sectors" in the traditional sense, so there's nothing to tell the BIOS what to boot.

To make a bootable USB Flash drive, you'll have to either copy the files off of the CD onto a FAT or ext2 file system on the flash drive and manually install a bootloader (like SYSLINUX), or use a tool that automates the process for you.

Oh, snap did I answer that wrong!

You can only dd a hybrid image you can't dd a cd/dvd iso image. See red hat site for how to use a usb as an install device.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
