USB boot the Fedora 12 Installer DVD

http://people.redhat.com/wtogami/archive/2009/livecd-iso-to-disk-fedora12.sh

This is a modified version of livecd-iso-to-disk.sh that will install the Fedora 12 Beta i386 or x86_64 onto an ext3 formatted USB drive.  You should be able to boot the USB drive, and it should automatically detect the .iso copied there.  ext3 format required!  The 3GB+ DVD .iso wont fit on vfat filesystem due to the 2GB file size limit.

Does this script work running on Fedora 11 to write the Fedora 12 DVD .iso?  I don't know.  Please try it and report back.

This will be pushed in livecd-tools-031+.  It would be nice if liveusb-creator gained similar functionality...
