I have now got the liveusb working just fine - I abandoned the technique
suggested in the Alpha release notes (using dd) and instead reformatted the
usbkey, installed unetbootin in the F10 system and used it to prepare a
bootable usbkey from the F12 alpha rc1 iso - it boots just fine with the
usbkey, KMS works fine and the desktop works well.

So the method for creating the bootable usbkey needs to be right!

The iso file is too large to write to a CD but could be burnt to a DVD - but
this way leaves one optical disk less to go onto the tip after it is
finished with...

So now I can test F12 alpha.
