I have just created a usb boot disk so that I can install Fedora 14.
I used the following which was successfully. However, I am left wondering what does the bs parameter actually does. I know it mean bytes and copies these at a time. But how do I know what to set it to?
dd if=F14-Live-i686.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=8M
In the above example it is set to 8MB. However could I set this to any value that I want?
Many thanks for any advice,
