It attempts to boot but eventually fails trying to load the kernel.  If I try "syslinux /dev/sda1", the USB device fail to boot at all. I would think that /dev/sda would be the correct device to use if one wants to write a boot record to track 0, sector 0 and not /dev/sda1. Am I missing something here?
