Parted only allows to make a ext2 filesystem.
How should I do this. Why does it work out of the box with you guys?

First of all, parted will make many other file systems besides ext2.
From the man page:

mkfs partition fs-type
  Make  a  filesystem  fs-type on partition. fs-type can be
  one of "fat16", "fat32", "ext2", "linux-swap", or "reiserfs".

But I believe what they are asking you to do is make sure the boot
flag is set on the partition.


what should be the capacity of the stick?

I've been able to get live-iso to work with a 4 Gb USB key disk (even
with the DVD)

You can get there with 4GB, but IIRC there was little/no room for a swap partition. Also no need on any machine I used, but not all machines have large memory.

I already bought two sticks and followed the instructions in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB#Ability_to_boot_from_USB_media

But I always got the notice to make the stick bootable (the last one was 8GB)

Does this mean
- the sticks are no good?
- I'm doing something wrong?
- what kind of stick is ok?
