Much better.  Some suggestions attached.  I've not fully tested these
suggestions, but I think they should work.  Consider them for your next
release.  I also suggest moving the installation instructions to the
start of the page, just before "About the build".

Surely you can find a better hosting service, where you can choose the
names.  ;-)  If not, at least look at tinyurl.com or equivalent

This is not true where dd is being used on the partition level.  Writing
a 64Mb ext2 filesystem image to the first partition of a 1GB USB stick,
for instance, does not change the factory optimized partitioning.
