Upgrade to Fedora 10

This night i updated my Fedora box to version 10 (previously version 8), i use Live-CD installer, burn the image into a CD. Problem, the CD was corrupted, i got I/O request error when booting. I switch to USB install. Assume we are login as root, and the USB stick's device is /dev/sdb. Here are my steps:

#mkdofs -F 16 -n Fedora10 /dev/sdb
#yum install livecd-tools
#livecd-iso-to-disk /path/to/live-cd-image.iso /dev/sdb

Then boot with the USB to start installation, the installation process is pretty fast. I don't know what new features that Fedora 10 comes with but i should try a shiny new distro too :p.
