I am trying to create 2 diffrent partition like in the wiki
the first one fat32 10Mio
the second one ext2 the rest

on the fat32 partition i only have syslinux.cfg
on the ext2 partition the following tree :

/media/disk-1
|-- CentOS
|   `-- all my rpms
|-- TRANS.TBL
|-- boot.cat
|-- boot.msg
|-- general.msg
|-- images
|   |-- README
|   |-- TRANS.TBL
|   |-- boot.iso
|   |-- diskboot.img
|   |-- minstg2.img
|   |-- pxeboot [error opening dir]
|   |-- stage2.img
|   `-- xen [error opening dir]
|-- initrd.img
|-- iso
|   `-- custom.iso
|-- ks
|   |-- TRANS.TBL
|   `-- ks.cfg
|-- ldlinux.sys
|-- lost+found
|-- memtest
|-- options.msg
|-- package-ipbx
|   `-- post install packages
|-- param.msg
|-- repodata
|   |-- TRANS.TBL
|   |-- comps.xml
|   |-- filelists.xml.gz
|   |-- other.xml.gz
|   |-- primary.xml.gz
|   `-- repomd.xml
|-- rescue.msg
|-- splash.lss
|-- syslinux.cfg
`-- vmlinuz

My CentOS iso file is : custom.iso
It is a custom CentOS distro that i have made and it worked perfectly on 
my Virtual Machine on virtual box

sorry for my Directory tree it wasn't up to date

Am I right ?
