Yeah, I originally used the isotostick.sh to create usb sticks with the 
OLPC's sugar interface (its original purpose), but I tried it with both 
the liveCD and the alternate install this past weekend and it works with 
them just fine - with two cavets.
1) isotostick.sh needs gutsy - it doesn't really work under feisty 
unless you do some surgery, and
2) for the alternate CD I had to add a copy of the iso image as well, 
meaning it took a 2GB stick.
