Unhappy Having problems booting USB Thumb Slax

I have a 1 gig flash drive, "Lexar Jumpdrive Elite", I used the script on their website to install it onto the drive, in my bios I tried all of the options and the only one that responds to the drive is "USB-HDD", so I use that. The bios is "Phoenix - AwardBios v6.00PG". When I set it in USB-HDD mode I see the following:

Verifying DMI Pool Data ............
Boot from CD :

^ right here is the little blinking cursor, but its totaly unresponsive, though ctrl+alt+del does reboot it from there, thats all it can do lol.

Iv verified that the files are on the drive and are intact, I can view them all from windows.

I cannot find anything that even resembles this on google or this forums search engine, thanks for your time.

Also, does anyone know if you can install/compile standard packages for linux under Slax? I diddent see any of the normal linux file structure in the folders, so it made me wonder.
