I started by listing that:
1. I have a partitioned USB stick, 8G, with a 10M FAT32 partition, and the
rest as ext3.
2. Rsync'd isolinux to the FAT partition, renamed isolinux.cfg to
3. syslinux to the USB
4. mounted DVD.iso, and rsync'd all of that to the ext3 partition.
5. mounted the second DVD, and rsync'd Packages/* to the Packages
directory already there, and so have a 1 DVD, effectively, on the USB.

But the question is what image# 1 that it's looking for? It's not trying
to look on the USB for an .iso, is it?
