About This File
Welcome to the OSX86 ModUSB Installer.
This project's goal is to successfully eliminate the need to use a modified DVD in order to provide the ease of the common distro install, as well as taking away the involvement of piracy that using OS X distros always involve.
If you have any suggestions on how to improve This, be sure and let me (nawcom) know.
You can contact him on IRC:

This is the same thing as the ModCD (automatic hardware support detection, installer package modification, etc) but made to be installed to a USB stick with the retail DVD imaged to it (for reason lacking a DVD-ROM on the target system you want to install to, NOT to make it easier to pirate.) You could also image your DVD to a separate disk and it should detect and be able to boot it if you wanted to, but I personally don't suggest that at all. Keep it all on one usb stick when possible.
About the core parts of these boot modding medias:
Feel free to base your own version of ModUSB/Mod CD off of this, just give credit of what it is based off of - either nawcom's Mod Booters or meklort's netbook installer is fine.
About the legality of these boot modding medias:
Understand that by purchasing and installing Mac OS X onto a non-Apple labelled computer, you are breaking the End User License Agreement (EULA).
Understand that by using the technology in FakeSMC, you are breaking the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by circumventing the encryption of core binaries meant to be decrypted by the hardware's SMC (System Management Controller).
Understand that you are taking responsibilities for your use of this software; the developers are not taking the responsibilities.
