Re: Transfer .iso to USB flash
You can have a look at this script
http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/jmcneill/mkmemstick.sh to transform
a netbsd ISO image to an USB image.
It requires a NetBSD system to run (to install the NetBSD bootloader) and
sysutils/cdrtools from pkgsrc.
$ sh mkmemstick.sh i386cd-5.0.1.iso i386memstick-5.0.1.img
Then dd the image on your USB stick
Hope this helps.
