Provide link to instructions for placing live CD on USB on main download page

Feature state

openSUSE.org
Done

Description

The live CDs on http://software.opensuse.org reference the fact that they can be placed on a USB instead of a CD, but there does not appear to be a link to any instructions on how to do so. I think adding a link to something like 
http://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick  would be an excellent addition.

User benefit:

Easier to get ahold of suse and make use of the feature allowing it to be placed on USB drive.

Usecase

Users who wish to try out SUSE and don't want to burn a CD don't have to go fishing around and googling about how to place on USB.

I actually looked for that myself a week or so ago.  Was surprised the link wasn't already there.

Seems like a really simple thing to implement, any chance we can attract those with the ability to do so?

There is a Getting Help box on software.o.o (on the right). It contains a link Installation Guides. It will take you to the wiki and there you can select USB Installation. So the feature is somehow done. I'm not saying it cannot be done in a better way.

In the "How to Proceed" section there is:

"After having successfully downloaded the ISO image(s), burn the image(s) with your favorite burning application to a DVD or CD. Please do 
not  burn a data DVD/CD, but rather choose the option to burn an ISO image. More information"

The more information link points to http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Download_help#Burn_the_ISO_image.28s.29 . Somewhere on that wiki page and/or in the previous text it should link to the Live USB stuff.

I never even noticed box to the right, but that is nice to have. Since there are already related instructions to"what do I do with this .iso file" below I think we ought to add instructions for Live USB in one manor or another. I am open to suggestions.

Please check again, the text was changed some time ago.
