Missing bits and pieces in make-live?
> #make-live --bootstrap debootstrap --distribution sid --username
> usblive --filesystem ext2 --bootloader grub -b hdd -p standard
note that selecting a bootloader on -b hdd has no effect; hdd is the
binary image type which creates a tarball with the necessary files but
*without* a bootloader (that is what this binary image type is usefull for).

what do you mean with 'target usb-stick'?

dd if=binary.img of=/dev/$your_device

as said, -b hdd is not an image, just a tarball. you want -b usb (resp.
-b usb-hdd as of 1.0~a8-1).
also note that currently grub is not supported in connection with
anything different than -b iso; you want to use syslinux in the meanwhile.
so.. the right command for you would be:
make-live --bootstrap debootstrap --distribution sid --username usblive
--filesystem squashfs --bootloader syslinux -b usb-hdd -p standard

i don't think so.
