Is there anything special to boot grml-small 0.3 from
usb-stick, other than what is said in the wiki. 

I followed the wiki,

    *  Get the grml iso (and verifed the md5sum)
    * Mount the iso loopback (e.g. mount -o loop
grml_0.4.iso /mnt/grml-iso)
    * Make FAT16 filesystem on the usbstick (e.g.
mkfs.vfat -F 16 -v /dev/sda1)
    * Mount the usbstick (e.g. mount /dev/sda1
    * Copy everything to the usbstick (e.g. cp -a
/mnt/grml-iso/* /mnt/external1)
    * Move all files from
/mnt/external1/boot/isolinux/ to root of usb-stick (mv
/mnt/external1/boot/isolinux/* /mnt/external1)
    * Umount the usbstick and the grml-iso
    * Run syslinux on the usbstick (e.g. syslinux
    * Check if the usbstick has an valid mbr, else dd
if=mbr.bin of=/dev/sda bs=304 count=1 (mbr.bin is in
the syslinux package)

However, when I boot my usb, I got:

Many lines saying:

 Unknown keyword in syslinux.cfg.

And the last line is:

 Missing parameter in syslinux.cfg.

after hitting enter after boot:

I got:

 Could not find kernel image: grml

Please help.
