Yum will do that by default in Live mode; anything you install whilst running off a live optical disc is installed to RAM because you are running off of RAM as it is. If you want to do it explicitly, though, you can create a RAM disk: mkdir foo mount -t tmpfs -o size=4096M bar /foo where: mount is the command. -t tmpfs specifies the type of filesystem. ...

My advice would be to download Fedora 22 Workstation installer from Fedora's site (https://getfedora.org/) and run it. Fedora 20 is a couple of years old and while it is certainly still usable, they have made improvements. As for the live usb creator, if my memory serves that creates an installable version on a usb device. I used it once a long time ago ...
