Please add following text to the manual page about installing on an usb stick.
http://www.sysresccd.org/Sysresccd-manu ... _USB-stick

Currently the page has 5 sections: A to E. I suggest to put this new text as section A and move the previous sections down one spot each.

the new text:

A) Recommended USB installation method from Linux using isohybrid

If you are running Linux on your computer and have isohybrid installed it's very easy to install SystemRescueCD on a USB stick. You just have to download the ISO image of SystemRescueCD, and then run isohybrid to prepare the iso image for booting from an USB stick. The prepared iso image can then be written to an USB stick using dd. Writing to the USB stick with dd will remove all its content, so make sure you don't need the data or make a backup first.

1. Download the latest SystemRescueCd ISO image from the Download page
2. Run isohybrid /path/to/systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso. This will modify the iso in place.
3. Plug in your USB stick and wait 5 seconds to allow enough time for the system to detect it
4. Unmount the USB stick if auto-mount is enabled or if it was already mounted
5. Run dd if=/path/to/systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso of=/dev/sdx where sdx is the USB stick
