[syslinux] MEMDISK and LOADLIN

I'm a newbie on all of this so this might be a very stupid question!

I have a DOS boot disk which loads generic USB drivers to make my USB pen
drive accessible under DOS.  The pen drive has a number of floppy disk
images on it of various utilities and I want to mount these using MEMDISK
via LOADLIN.  All my attempts so far either freeze the PC or reboot it!  I
have tried running it from the c: drive (with no DOS drivers loaded at all)
just to make sure that the USB drivers are not causing the problem but I get
the same result.

The floppy disk images are fine - I have used them with an ISOLINUX boot CD.

Am I attempting the impossible?
