Hello Jeff,

Please accept my apologies for not replying earlier.

Indeed 40Meg is too small. I would recommend you to use our new Fedora
USB feature [1].

The idea behind the Fedora USB feature is to allow anyone to create
liveusb stick based on Fedora iso. Hence you can have your FEL in your
usbstick and walk with it anywhere you want. There is also a small
windows software[2] to create such liveusb image. The wiki page [2]
describes how to create such liveusb disk.

Using the persistant mode you can even save your data on the usb stick.

I invite you to join our mailing list [3].

Happy Chip design with your usbstick.
