Oh
you mean at boot?

mmm...
uh....mmm

does it show a menu at boot?

here's my syslinux.cfg
modified by me


Code:
default /syslinux/vesamenu.c32
timeout 0

menu background /syslinux/splash.jpg
menu title Welcome to lxde-fedora-11!
menu color border 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color sel 7 #ffffffff #ff000000
menu color title 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color tabmsg 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color unsel 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color hotsel 0 #ff000000 #ffffffff
menu color hotkey 7 #ffffffff #ff000000
menu color timeout_msg 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color timeout 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color cmdline 0 #ffffffff #00000000

label memtest
  menu label Memory Test
  kernel /syslinux/memtest

label local
  menu label Boot from local drive
  localboot 0xffff
the only things I changed was the "timeout 0"
setting it to 0 it will just boot, no menu

to set which one to boot use "menu default"
see how it has the first entry as "menu default"?

and I gave full path to kernel/initrd/splash.jpg
which is in the "syslinux" folder
so just add /syslinux/
before them as above

please explain more about the freezing?
does it say
"assuming drive cache write thru"
or something like that?

I tried it, but look:
Code:
Default vesamenu.c32
timeout 100
that's what it looked like, maybe that was the problem
but I changed it to
Code:
Default linux0
      timeout 0
but when I tried booting, it froze at the loader saying the syslinux copyright

did you try also editing the syslinux.cfg
so it says

Quote:
/syslinux/vmlinuz0
/syslinux/initrd0.img
just add the /syslinux/
in front of where it says kernel and initrd
like

Quote:
kernel /syslinux/vmlinuz0
append initrd=/syslinux/initrd0.img
try that

OH
it's not freezing maybe
just not showing the kernel, etc booting

try letting it load up
if the light is blinking on usb while it's booting
then it's ok
see if it loads up
give it like a min or so...

Man!
I got something like the following errors (sadly I can't use a screen capturer during something like this)
It took a while to load
when loaded I saw the little fedora loader thing
then it said something like "wrong fs" than it said stuff and it said Good Luck! and showed fields that begun with #bash

ok what were the old settings supposed to be like, I'll try them again but make sure there's not the 100. Do you know the old stuff in the .cfg file?

I notice there is an extra zero, but it means 10. Because when there is only one zero there's only 1 second time out. But the 1 still froze.

Let me try something else. Hey the Linux0 does the zero mean anything like 0 timeout?
