Or just wait until the process is streamlined and "just works". Shouldn't be long now that USB boot has been demonstrated.

You don't really learn anything if you don't experiment, tinker, and yes.. hack... under the hood... up close and personal. Learning leads to knowledge.

In our increasingly knowledge-base economy: more knowledge = more money.
