I'm trying to set up a custom installation of CentOS using kickstart
i tried many thing from how to's and tutorial web pages but nothing 
worked ;(

Here is my USB key tree :
|-- CentOS
| |-- all my rpms
| `-- last rpm
|-- TRANS.TBL
|-- boot.cat
|-- boot.msg
|-- custom.iso
|-- general.msg
|-- images
| |-- README
| |-- TRANS.TBL
| |-- boot.iso
| |-- diskboot.img
| |-- minstg2.img
| |-- pxeboot
| | |-- README
| | |-- TRANS.TBL
| | |-- initrd.img
| | `-- vmlinuz
| |-- stage2.img
| `-- xen
| |-- TRANS.TBL
| |-- initrd.img
| `-- vmlinuz
|-- initrd.img
|-- ks
| |-- TRANS.TBL
| `-- ks.cfg
|-- ldlinux.sys
|-- memtest
|-- options.msg
|-- package-ipbx
| `-- packages for postinstall
|-- param.msg
|-- repodata
| |-- TRANS.TBL
| |-- comps.xml
| |-- filelists.xml.gz
| |-- other.xml.gz
| |-- primary.xml.gz
| `-- repomd.xml
|-- rescue.msg
|-- splash.lss
|-- syslinux.cfg
|-- syslinux.cfg~
`-- vmlinuz

I install syslinux on the USB key and also use the following command :

dd if=/dev/sdb of=/tmp/mbr_sdb.bin bs=512 count=1



I tried to install CentOS from my USB key but it says :

Title : "Missing ISO 9660"
Content : "The installer has tried to mount image #1,but cannot find it 
on the hard drive ... "
