The easiest way is to use liveusb-creator (multi OS).

su -c "yum install liveusb-creator"

This tool, the liveusb-creator also supports UEFI systems with EFI booting. It will make the USB a GPT because some systems need to have GPT. For UEFI systems on Windows, you might also want to try Rufus (only for Windows). liveusb-creator will even let you create persistent storage (meaning it won't destroy any of your data if you select that option). Remember that your iso should be Live. If not, you could use unetbootin. There is a doc for that.

Probably the easiest way to create a bootable USB key in Fedora is to install unetbootin and use it to create a key.

sudo yum -y install unetbootin syslinux-extlinux && sudo unetbootin

If this is a key you already have setup and just need to turn on the boot flag. You can use parted against the device to turn on the boot flag.
