Is anyone else having problems with syslinux under Puppy 10.4?

When I try to use syslinux on a usb flash drive it returns the following:

# syslinux /dev/sda1
syslinux: possibly unsafe /tmp permissions

To determine the extent of the problem, I downloaded syslinux 3.09. Using the regular syslinux program in 3.09s unix directory returned the same message. Using syslinux in 3.09's mtools directory, however, worked perfectly.

# cd mtools
# ./syslinux /dev/sda1

anyone have any ideas?

Hmmm, has anyone tried installing Puppy to usb, from live-cd?
That uses syslinux.

Puppy 1.0.4 on USB from live CD did not boot. The message on the screen is "Boot failed".

Reinstall syslinux using Win2K/XP failed after trying a number of suggestions.

Reinstall syslinux using syslinux 2.11 on a Win98SE works and the USB boots up.
