    Installing BackTrack to memorystick

    I've got a minor problem..

    I tried to install BackTrack to a 2GB memorystick using MySlax..
    Formatting, copying, everything ok..
    But when I boot from the USB memorystick I get the following message:

    SYSLINUX 3.11 200-09-02 EBIOS Load error - Boot error

    Google didn't give a lot of info..

    How do I fix this?

    I used MySlax to copy the stuff to the memorystick

    The problem was in the version of syslinux that's on the BackTrack CD.
    I downloaded en used the latest version (3.20) of syslinux to make the stick bootable and now it boots
