Bug#511679: installation-guide-i386: Provide information on how to restore USB stick to its previous state

Package: installation-guide-i386
Version: Current version http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s03.html
Severity: wishlist


I have installed Lenny Testing through a USB stick as described in

It boots OK as it should etc.

The problem now is that I cannot recover/restore my USB stick to its previous
state. Before me installing the Debian installer on it, the USB capacity (size)
was 2Gb and now when I open the USB device with either fdisk or cfdisk it only
shows a 1Gb capacity.

That's why I think that the Debian GNU/Linux Installation Guide should feature
a small section on "Howto restore the USB stick to its previous state".
So that people like me are not left with a crippled USB mass storage afterward.

Best and warm regards
