This command can be repeated for multiple USB's:
Note it takes about 10 minutes to write to each 4 GB USB
use "mount" command to confirm USB device name and edit: of=/dev/sd(x)
[root at localhost Desktop]# dd if=Soas_8.img of=/dev/sdc bs=2M

1912+0 records out

[root at localhost Desktop]#
This is a real netinstall of f18 sugar-desktop to a 4 GB USB with firstboot not yet run*
