Package: installation-guide
Severity: normal

According to 4.3.1. Copying the files — the easy way:

A second disadvantage is that you cannot copy a full CD image onto the USB stick, but only the smaller businesscard or netinst CD images.


Unfortunately, the i386 netinst, which now weighs 231 MB, does not fit anymore on the 256 MB partition created by the 31 MB boot.img.gz, unsurprisingly.

Either the boot.img should only support businesscard images, the netinst should be sized down, or boot.img.gz should create a larger partition. I notice that 256 MB USB sticks are actually still being sold. An alternative would be to provide several boot.img, for varying sizes. 1 GB would be fine for me.
