Yea.  That's what I did.  I already had the normal ~4G install iso
downloaded and didn't feel like downloading another similarly sized
iso just for this one computer.  Here are the steps to put the normal
install dvd onto a thumb drive:

    su -
    yum install livecd-tools
    mkdir /mnt/iso
    mount -o loop .../Fedora-10-i386-DVD/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/iso
    livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr /mnt/iso/images/boot.iso /dev/sdd1

    mkdir /media/<usb disk>/images
    cp /mnt/iso/images/install.img  /media/<usb disk>/images/
    cp <path to>/Fedora-10-i386-DVD/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso /media/<usb-disk>/
    umount /mnt/iso

         You may need to config 6to4 to see the above pages.
