INSTALLATION copy a CrunchBang 10 or Crunchbang 11 ISO image to USB in Linux

:!: WARNING, the following instructions will destroy any existing data on your USB stick.

1. Insert your USB stick and learn how your USB stick is recognized by the system, enter the command:

sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*

This should produce output along the lines of:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  9 2010-03-15 22:54 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-_USB_DISK_2.0_077508380189-0:0 -> ../../sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-03-15 22:54 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-_USB_DISK_2.0_077508380189-0:0-part1 -> ../../sdb1

2. Unmount the usb stick (At least one report of it having to be mounted), then use this command to write (as root) the image iso to your USB stick.
:!: Replace /dev/sdX with the actual hard disk device learned from the command above. In this example /dev/sdb NOT /dev/sdb1
:!: Replace the name of the iso image below by the actual name of the iso image you downloaded.

sudo dd if=/path/to/iso/crunchbang-10-20101205-openbox-i686.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync

All being well, you should now have a bootable CrunchBang Statler USB stick.
