[syslinux] 2GB USBkey and mkdiskimage

I'm trying to make a USB-ZIP bootable filesystem on my USBkey, which is 2GB. 
The problem is that "mkdiskimage -4 /dev/sda 0 64 32" fails due to the large 
size. The number of sectors is 4005888/(64*32) = 1956, which is more than the 
maximum 1024. 

Is there any way around this or is it just not possible to make this USBkey 
look like a Zip drive?
