Maybe somebody without any experience:

My USBSTICK is /dev/sdc for example

She gparted /dev/sdc and create for example /dev/sdc2

Now she mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdc # and accept the possible advise

She won't have any debian live usb system anymore

What am I missing ? (sorry wasting your time)

Yes, of course I'm sure

I have just insert my debian live lenny pendrive and:
[35130.723059] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] 7892040 512-byte logical blocks:
(4.04 GB/3.76 GiB)
[35130.723797] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
[35130.723802] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 00 00 00 00
[35130.723807] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[35130.725790] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[35130.725797]  sdb: sdb1 sdb2
[35131.000673] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[35131.000682] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI disk

mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt/
ls /mnt/

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/
# ls /mnt/
autorun.inf  debian  doc    g2ldr.mbr  isolinux  md5sum.txt  pool	
README.mirrors.html  README.txt  win32-loader.ini
css	     dists   g2ldr  install    live	 pics	     README.html
README.mirrors.txt   setup.exe

But, maybe, forbid this question, I will burn squeeze alpha  usb in
this pendrive.

Thanks for making possible debian live!
