Hello,
trying to make a usb install on a thin client it seems I notice an
incorrect diskboot.img image in 5.7.
Anyone already discovered/reported this?

As soon as I boot from usb pen drive, I get an error
Could not find kernel image: linux

this depends on syslinux.cfg being empty

sha1sum of my dvd iso is correct
# sha1sum CentOS-5.7-i386-bin-DVD-1of2.iso
e0eab4dd77c3ecc73080428beaa4ffe28984dc4b  CentOS-5.7-i386-bin-DVD-1of2.iso

# mount -o loop CentOS-5.7-i386-bin-DVD-1of2.iso /mnt/

# sha1sum /mnt/images/diskboot.img
0568258b34eda506e76801ea5bfd6b57cdd299bc  /mnt/images/diskboot.img

# mount -o loop /mnt/images/diskboot.img /pp

on CentOS 5.7
under /pp I have:

Tried to simply copy the syslinux.cfg from 5.6 and recreating
diskboot.img but as soon as there are some dots of the initrd phase,
just before the moment when I should see the kernel messages the pc
reboots itself.
it is a Dell thin client Optiplex FX160
Donna if it could be a problem with my hw or other kind of problems in
necessary files.....
