    You *should* be able to use the DVD or CD images...

    See http://d-i.pascal.at/ for a "tutorial"

    It shouldn't make much difference what size of USB stick you have - although it MAY require that you format your stick as FAT16, which may limit the size of your stick to 2GB - but it shouldn't affect anything else.

    Should be the same, or similar concept.

    No harm in playing around
