Source: installation-guide
Severity: important

Almost all of section 4.3 (Preparing Files for USB Memory Stick
Booting) needs to go away. We should *not* be telling most users about
manually formatting media, copying installer files, etc.

My strong preference would be to simply remove *everything* after the
text "Simply writing the installation image to USB like this should
work fine for most users." The rest of the text here is massively
overblown for anybody except developers, and is causing confusion.

If anybody *does* want to keep the rest of the text, please put it in
an appendix called "extra USB options that nobody needs" or similar.

We should also remove mentions of the mini.iso in the "normal users"
section - it's totally not a sensible option for most people to ever
be trying to use it here.

We should definitely also kill section 4.4.2: Loadlin is *dead* -
*nobody* has DOS any more.
