Comment(by garycmartin):

 I don't have much hands on with USB (my Mac won't boot any so far for me
 to test, though the old PC's I occasionally bump into work fine), but I'm
 confused why folks are not ignoring all the live/overlay stuff (originally
 intended for CD Rom demo disks) and not just make a real install (I do
 this for my Sugar VMs)? Just burn an ISO to a CD, boot it, plug-in your
 USB device and then "sudo zyx-liveinstaller" from the Sugar Terminal. It
 walks you through partitioning, formatting, and then installs the OS to it
 as a regular install. You don't even have to reboot – though you might
 want to just to test magic and that the USB really boots ;-)
