This tool creates a bootable Live USB medium from a running Ubuntu Live CD.

It was made in response to Ubuntu Brainstorm idea #16.

It performs the following actions:

    * Detects available USB sticks (using HAL)
    * Partitions USB stick with 1 partition
    * Sets partition bootable
    * Writes MBR to USB stick
    * Formats partition FAT32
    * Installs bootloader (syslinux) to partition
    * Writes bootloader configuration file
    * Copies necessary files from running Live CD to USB stick
    * Sets language and keyboard of USB Live system to match running Live CD
    * Optionally: Downloads and integrates Adobe Flash Player
    * Optionally: Enables persistent home (Intrepid and later only; currently broken)
