USB Boot help


I am attempting to boot to USB to install Slackware 12.x, the machine I am installing it on does not have a cdrom for me to use for the install, which leaves me to boot to usb. I followed the instructions in the USB and PXE installers folder, however when I try and boot to my USB device it tells me "Disk Error press any key to restart"

What do I need to do to make this USB device boot so I can install Slackware?

If possible, just send me an IM (msn): Chaoticdude@cableone.net
