Acer Aspire One (150)

While I don't have a Acer Aspire I do have a netbook of some kind and  
I would like to raise the general issue that you get with them. They  
don't have CD drives. From the sounds of things, it doesn't seem like  
too big a deal for you as you have an external one (although you have  
dropped in to the kernel debugger...) but I would imagine that many  
people don't have such a luxury.

I think USB flash images are the way to go and I dug up a script from  
Dario Freni on FreeBSD front for converting ISO images to USB disc  
images[1]. I think this is a start and I would like to encourage the  
creation of one for the DragonFly Project. I want to work on this but  
it's bound to take me a while :) Anyone got any tips?

[1] (Script is  
garbled a little so I've attached a cleaned up one)
