I just downloaded UBCD 5.3.4 and had trouble creating a USB boot disk. The instructions here:
are mainly for Windows users and there is little help for Linux.
I followed the instructions in this file:
The syslinux command failed with error message "syslinux: no previous syslinux boot sector found". This problem is described here:

I had to add switch "--install" to make it work. Could you please amend that file with that hint?
Another thing worth mentioning / clarifying is that you need to run syslinux from your hard disk, because you cannot mark files as executable on a FAT32 partition, which is what we formatted the USB drive with. I do not know why I assumed one should run syslinux from the USB stick, but such a hint would have saved me some time.
Thanks in advance,
