Why you need to syslinux? Do you have embedded ? did you install linux before installing syslinux? – PersianGulf Jan 23 '13 at 6:43
I am making linux from scratch. – gabemai Jan 23 '13 at 13:39

I installed Syslinux on a 128 MB SD card following its documentation and it worked. The only problem of that method is it only works on FAT or NTFS file systems.
