Will that command line below create a zenwalk USB installer? But if not what will?

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=/home/guest/Downloads/zenwalk-8.0.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress oflag=nocache,sync && sync


Where of=/dev/sdb could it point to this of=/dev/sdb1 or not?

Code: Select all

dd if=zenwalk-8.0.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=1M

ok, but you could simply have copied the ISO to the USB disk with dd

I try, but I could not get it to work so I did the next best thing I know CD/DVD should work.
