    booting custom *.img


    Hello,

    Not sure if this is going in the right place but here goes anyway,

    I have a spare usb pendrive (previously used to boot slaxKB ed) and i want to make it bootable so it can boot my custom floppy.img would this be possible with syslinux or one of its sub projects or am I looking in the wrong place.

    i have no problem booting from usb as all my test machines are current asus boards

    did you try isomaster opensource project that will allow you to choose an iso and create a bootable header then you can write the iso to usb?
    or ive heard from around google that you need to have a small partition to be fat16 on pen drives to boot it ! the boot partition can be written using lilo

    like so
    lilo -M /dev/XXX where XXX is your pendrive
    first unmount it though
