[syslinux] chainloading syslinux problem

I have bootable (USB flash) disk, that _appears_ to be using syslinux.
(the word syslinux is in the PBR, in the hexdump).
How can I chainload it? The payload seems to be a file that I tried
load with COMBOOT, COM32 etc, but nothing works (they report that the
file is not in proper format, wrong magic number or simply crash). How
to proceed?

is there a 100% way to confirm that it is really syslinux? So I don't
waste your time if it isnt
