    Well, DRAT!


    Okay, I have Knoppix on a dvd that I got with "linux for dummies." that wouldn't boot completely; don't know why. But my Ubuntu disk is a live disk, so I used that to boot into Ubuntu. I saw the USB drive! However, I didn't find the files that I supposedly put there when I ran that execute command in Windows. I looked EVERYWHERE in the files, even made sure I showed the hidden files. There is no Iso* files; maybe because it wasn't mounted from an ISO? dunno.

    The next thing I'm going to try is to run the syslinux exe. from a commandline, and run it into another folder on teh C drive, then move the contents of that folder onto my USB flash drive; I can access my USB flash drive from Ubuntu, so maybe I can move the ones I need from there into the Ubuntu files.

    Is it possible I need to add a "wait" or "delay" or "pause" command to whatever file is being used to direct the boot process?
