yes but it doesn't work

what i have done :

creating a fat 32 partition on my USB key (4 GB)
tagging it with boot flag

copy MBR on the key :

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


Using syslinux :

 syslinux /dev/sdb1



Here is my key tree :
|-- CentOS
|   |-- all my rpms
|   `-- last rpm
|-- TRANS.TBL
|-- boot.cat
|-- boot.msg
|-- custom.iso
|-- general.msg
|-- images
|   |-- README
|   |-- TRANS.TBL
|   |-- boot.iso

Attachment : ks.cfg and syslinux.cfg

Everithing is fine 'till anaconda start and try to copy rpm packages

Using kickstart configuration or manual (text) configuration show the 
same error
