From the installation instructions:
1. Download liberte-201X.Y.zip from the SourceForge project site.
2. Extract the archive into the root folder of the media you want to use.
To make the media bootable:
3. (Windows) In liberte folder, launch setup.bat. You probably need to right-click and select Run as administrator in Vista and in Windows 7 read the console messages. (Linux) Copy liberte/setup.sh to a local directory, and run setup.sh /dev/XXX as root providing the (unmounted) media to which you extracted the archive as the argument. Syslinux (and GNU Parted if /dev/XXX is a partition) must be installed.
I wish Ubuntu would put its live media contents into a single folder as well, on a CD as well as on a USB stick. That makes it less scary than an arcane assortment of SYSLINUX.XYZ and CASPAR directory entries. Also supplying a setup.sh is sensible. We could even introduce a cross-distro convention how the layout of a Linux live USB stick should look like. Much better than the current state of affairs, which amounts to semin-reliable unetbootin, usb-creator and friends. The layout might be:
On boot, SYSLINUX or GRUB, which is installed with a single click by some program like usb-creator, would present the user with a choice of which directory (containing a live.ini) to base the boot on.
