[20090809] Install NetBSD from a USB memory stick the easy way
Jared McNeill dropped me a mail to hint at a project to create a bootable disk image from a NetBSD ISO image, so he can easily install it on his EeePC. The script takes an ISO file, and writes a disk image that can then be written on a memory stick using dd(1).

See also this blog posting on creating disk images from NetBSD release files (not on ISO, but therefore tested on i386 and shark :-).

Now who's going to integrate building of an install/full image into our release process? And while there, also make a VMware image? :)
