I've recently started using Debian via the live releases that are
available via http://live.debian.net/.  I ran into some of the issues
that Charles addresses.  I'd be happy to contribute to improving the
documentation based on what I've learned.  What I'm wondering is
"where to put it"?

I get it that it should go somewhere off of http://www.debian.org/.
The "Getting Debian" section (http://www.debian.org/distrib/) seems
like a candidate.

Alternately, the Debian installation manual
(http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/installmanual) has some
information about installation and booting from a thumb drive, but I
don't think I see any specifics with respect to directly using the
live releases available at http://live.debian.net/.  Would using such
an image really be considered an installation?  I could add to the
"Installation HowTo" appendix if appropriate.
