Unetbootin - always "boot error" upon reboot


I'm having problems with unetbootin. I have tried the latest version and older versions but always end up with "boot error" when the grub menu should show up upon reboot.

I've read that the flash drive should be bigger than one gig (which it is) and that it should be formatted to FAT32 (which it is.)

I get no errors when unetbootin is setting up the iso/files. Nothing unusual.

Might anybody have any ideas why no matter which way I go, separate iso I downloaded or one built-in I always get "boot error" and never see the grub entry for unetbootin?

Wow. Nevermind. Formatting it to ext3 works. Wish I would have done that sooner.
