Default Syslinux onto my USB and mac os x dmg not going onto USB - 04-17-2009, 06:40 AM

hey all
so i'm using the DellEFI method of 2 USB drives and a mac and windows computer to set up my dell mini9. i'm having some trouble though, hopefully someone can help me. so everytime i go to disk utility and try to put the image onto the 8GB flash drive, it tells me something about it needing to be imagescanned or scanned i believe if i remember correctly. i keep trying it and it doesn't work. anyone know what the problem is? thanks
and also, can someone explain the proper method of putting syslinux on a usb drive? i got to the cmd part in the run on windows xp but i get to the cmd prompt and it says c:\documents and settings\seagull> and i type in the codes but it won't work. i know it must be me, so if anyone can help thanks
