As I keep saying on various Sugar related lists although you can install
SOAS using Windows environment and software (liveusb-construct) you
cannot so the same thing from a machine running Fedora.
In Fedora the liveusb-construct runs just as it does under Windows but:
1. The usb stick does not boot to sugar or any other useful state.
2. The files put on the stick are not the same as those are the Windows
prepared stick but several files are missing. I am working on a file
list which I can send if anyone is interested,
One more thing. The Widows produced stick ends up with a readme that is
largely wrong and irrelevant to SOAS. It relates to LiveCD and LiveDVD
where the media is not writable when the OS is running. Much of it is
misleading to someone running SOAS.
