Can someone tell me if syslinux will work on a harddisk ?

I have a 4mb flash device that plugs into the IDE connector
on the motherboard, and i'm trying to get syslinux to work
with it, so I can load a Linux kernel and an initrd.

I'm not having any luck with it.

Then it dawned on me that the boot loader in syslinux might
be expecting a floppy drive rather than an atapi hard disk.

Any thoughts?
