Tryinb to build a sysresccd bootable usb using their install exe, I got stuck to an error message.
When I try under cmd to "syslinux --install --directory syslinux H:" I get back "Reading boot sector: el parametro no es correcto" (i.e. uncorrect parameter).
I tried with syslinux.exe 4.04, 4.05, 4.10pre22, 5.00pre2 ...

Could anyone help me with:
a ) a workaround,
b ) how to contact the syslinux project
c ) any good idea ..

Thanks in advance,

RMPrepUSB will install syslinux for you from under Windows. To use an older version of syslinux, just overwrite syslinux.exe in the RMprepUSB application folder with the one that you want to use. Did you try typing syslinux to see command line usage.
If you use RMPrepUSB it will show what command line it is using.
