Installation to a USB stick in Fedora or Ubuntu – with persistence!
Use the following command as root in Fedora:

NOTE 1: Change X to b, d, e or… Check it carefully to avoid data losses. You must use the whole stick (for example /dev/sdb) not a partition (for example /dev/sdb1).

NOTE 2: After a few changes you can also use the above command also in Ubuntu. Read more about it…
NOTE 3: The above command is the only one that actually works. And you can’t use Fedora Media Writer (or any other program with a GUI (if you want persistence).
NOTE 4: If you don’t have an installed Fedora system on your computer you can run Exton|Defender from a DVD and install to a USB stick using the command above. Or run Exton|Defender from one USB stick and install on another USB stick.
