Create a Live Open Mandriva USB (Windows)

This simple tutorial explains how to put Open Mandriva on a USB Flash Drive from within a running Windows environment by using YUMI. Upon completion, the resulting Bootable USB can be used to try out OpenMandriva Live on USB. You can also use the Bootable USB to install to your hard drive, instead of using a traditional CD/DVD ROM for installation.
