     746Note : SamK indicated that the following command was needed too:
     747{{{

    757765# syslinux -s /dev/sdc1
    758 # or, if necessary and because some versions of syslinux do not support the -s option. (particularly Debian Squeeze) use:-
    759 # syslinux --stupid /dev/sdc1
    760 
    761 }}}
     766}}}
     767
     768Be aware that "syslinux -s /dev/sdc1" will not make bootable the USB device through the Debian and Ubuntu distributions that use syslinux 4.02 (Ubuntu 10.10, Ubuntu 11.04, Debian Squeeze), until Canonical and Debian decide to upgrade to syslinux 4.03.
     769Meanwhile, the solution is to replace it by: "syslinux --stupid /dev/sdc1".
