help with creating Fedora bootable USB from Windows

So I just got a netbook and am trying to install Fedora alongside Windows on it. I used Fedora's LiveUSB creator to put their Science spin on my (USB) flash drive. I booted my netbook from my flash drive, and got the following message (which I found in one of the files under SYSLINUX):

"SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 COPYWRITE (c) 1994-2011 H. Peter Anvin et al"

So basically I know there is something wrong with bootable media. I'm not sure if it is in the installing of it, or in the running of it. I originally thought the netbook is a 32-bit architecture, but its not. I thought it was that I was running the liveUSB creator not as an administrator so I did. Is there something else I am doing wrong/not doing that I need to do?
