dd is a dangerous tool. You get the device name wrong and you might
destroy your entire hard disk content. And it is easy to get the name
wrong: in my computer, device names change from boot to boot, the moment I
plug an external usb disk.
The other thing is that other distros produce a special image for usb
sticks, in ext3/3 format, not an iso, which is RO. This may only be
useful for installation.
