I've a usb-key that boot regularly on a PC using syslinux 2.09; well, 
this PC (a thin-client) at the moment is the only PC that can boot from 
USB in my office... and it usually booted oretty well, without any hacks...

After changed to syslinux 3.07, it stopped booting, showing a simple 
"BOOT ERROR" message, nothing more...

Reverting to syslinux 2.09, it restarted to work...

Formatting the key, syslinux-ing it with 3.07 and recopying the 
software, it restarted working, but boot time is about 10 time 
slower.... minutes to load kernel and initrd instead of seconds...

Note: I'm using win32/syslinux.exe
