True. With isohybrid one has a trivial pendrive installation.
No installation program needed.

dd if=multicore-current.iso of=/dev/sdX

Just be absolutely sure that you have specified the correct target for the output file of=

Note: only the multicore.iso has this feature.
However it is simple to isohybrid the other isos, e.g.

isohybrid tinycore-current.iso

isohybrid is provided by the syslinux.tcz extension.
