	For some reason, whenever I put a thumbstick into the EeePC, it 
offers to boot from either of two. Usually one of those choices leads 
merely to a grub error; it did this time.

	When I chose the other (apparently Eeedora), however, it booted 
Crunchee. 

	Crunchee is what's on the hard drive; my guess is that the first, 
imaginary stick confuses Grub; but that the second simply defaults to the 
hard drive. Iow, that ex-Crunchee stick, which should have F10 Live, and 
pretends to have Eeedora, actually has nothing bootable at all. This 
despite my attempts to format it with gnome-format and to install any of 
several live CDs with liveusb-creator.
