I just played around with it a little, when I use livecd-iso-to-disk on the 
Fedora 8 i386 iso Image, a bootable stick is created. It does not boot with 
my USB hd (or maybe it just needs a lot longer than with the 1 GB stick). 
When I boot from the stick, anaconda allows to select to install from 
harddisk. Both devices are then found. The only problem is, that anaconda 
does not recognize the iso image, it says on some console, that the 
Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso image is not the right one. In German it also only 
mentions CDs but not DVDs, don't know, whether this is an issue.

Long story short: The only extra code seems to be to copy the iso image(s) to 
the usb device, given that anaconda supports using a harddisk for 
installation source and can use the iso files.
