Yeah, and normally the USB key shows up as sdb. I had to move it, for boot
order, to get it to boot from it (weird BIOS). But as I said, what I don't
know is what "image# 1" is referring to. It says "copy it to the right
directory and try again"... but I don't know *which* *.img it's referring
to. Karabanh? Johnny? Clues?
