salixlive (fluxbox) install on SD card 8GB ext2 format

I copied the salixlive data from the iso to a SD card (with ext2).

in /boot/grub
in /boot/salixlive

The extlinux.conf entry of my SD card is:
label salix 13.1.2 fluxbox
menu label salix 13.1.2 fluxbox
kernel /boot/salixlive/vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet lang=de keyb=de-latin1
## original was... for grub2 lang=${locale} keyb=${kb} ${runlevel}
## ${toram} ${numlock} ${synaptics} ${env} changes=slxsave.xfs
initrd /boot/salixlive/initrd.gz

It boots .. but stop in the middle ..

looking for 'salixlive' data directory (searching file livecd.sgn file)
Fatal error occured: salixlive not found

Can somebody help me and inform which type of bootcodes I should use?
Or perhaps it boots only with grub2? So, how to start grub2 from extlinux?

Salixlive needs to be copied into the root directory of whatever partition you are using. It won't co-operate if you put it in a subdirectory.
