I found a PNY stick at Best buy that boots Blueberry, in case anyone
is interested (Mel, I should post a link from your blog as well).

When I make the sticks using Windows-based USBCreator, what size
should I use for the overlay? Should I use all available space? As far
as I can tell, the larger the overlay, the longer it will take to
write at shutdown. Is this correct, or is the write time dependent on
what was created in the journal etc.? I have noticed that it takes
longer to create a stick with a larger overlay.

Any suggestions on "sweet spot" for overlay size would be great. I
have to burn 12 sticks tomorrow ;-)
