Creating a USB stick from a running live environment

If you are already running a live CD, DVD, or USB and want to convert that into a bootable USB stick, run the following command:

su -c "livecd-iso-to-disk /run/initramfs/livedev /dev/sdX"

(For versions before Fedora 17, use /dev/live instead of /run/initramfs/livedev.)

The above instructions are mentioned in but when I enter these in the terminal, it says command not found. Please help.

The complete steps are elaborated at - I'm not sure about replicating the F15 liveUSB you've booted from, but you should be creating an F20 image anyway.
