That's what I did: burned the liveCD, booted from that, and installed directly to my 8 GiB SanDisk flash drive. But then I needed the burned copy anyway.

Any solutions or thoughts on this would be appreciated.
copy files over to flash drive and then
sudo mkdir /mnt/iso # Optional - the ISO file can be mounted on an existing mount point if desired.
sudo mount -o loop /<path>/<filename>.iso /mnt/iso
and use gparted to flag the flash drive as bootable?
sudo umount /mnt/iso # When finished inspecting the contents.
