I would like to know what the manual steps are to replicate the operation of
unetbootin linux utility.
That is to say - how to manually install (and by word manually I really mean using the command-line and basic linux commands) a linux system on an external drive / stick from an ISO file sitting at another running linux system.
In my case I am running Fedora 19 and I want to install another distribution (regardless of which exactly) on a connected stick / drive.
I would like to learn and understand my linux better. There are many tutorials on the net but all of those I have found EITHER resort to using some installation utility OR boot from the drive to continue the installation once GRUB is on and iso file tranferred there.
