Working demonstration built.
The method involves `livecd-iso-to-disk` as this page.
Construction is copied from Help Activity, which uses Sphinx, http://sphinx-doc.org/.
liveinst method is under consideration.
Pro, makes nice 4 or 8 GB sticks.
Con, instructions are more difficult to write for novices.
- If the tutorial is to be available to all users, they should not easily be able to delete the host OS as could happen with anaconda.
- Fairly detailed instructions are necessary to explain how to set up a satisfactory for children boot record.
Might include a script which would probe the capacity of an inserted USB stick,and deliver the livecd-iso-to-disk command on confirmation by the user.
Might include liveinst instructions under the heading `How to install Sugar on an expired Windows XP machine`.
Benefit to Sugar
