By the way I was following the procedure detailed in 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_12_Alpha_release_notes
as a test to see if the new method for creating a liveusb worked or not -
and it did not for me.

The the alpha release notes it says:

"The following sections document major new features and changes in the
Fedora 12 Alpha release.
Hybrid ISO images - Simple and Easy Live USB's

In this release, the Fedora Live CD/DVD images can be converted into a Live
USB even simpler than before using just the dd command. Please note, that
unlike using the livecd-iso-to-disk script, this will overwrite the data on
the USB device.

dd if=foo.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M

Where foo.iso is the name of the Live CD or DVD image and sdX is the name of
the USB device. Windows users can use the utility available from here

Fedora continues to offer a more comprehensive Live USB creator that
supports additional features including persistent storage and non
destructive writing. "

Is this not yet implemented - or should it now work? Has anyone else got
this to work?
