Default Installing 6.0 via USB

I'm using LiveUSB-Creator to create a bootable USB drive from
CentOS-6.0-i386-netinstall.iso, and it gives me an error at startup:

vesamenu.c32: Not a COM32R image

I can hit tab and select "linux" and then it loads vmlinux and the initrd,
says "Ready", and then just hangs. I'm not sure what's supposed to happen
next. "vesa" and "rescue" do the same thing.

The error message above apparently is caused by the syslinux in the ISO not
matching the one that LiveUSB-Creator installs to boot from:

<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=662557>

The system has 512 MB of memory. Is that enough to boot the installer?

I tried with the minimal image and get the exact same result.

The x64 image includes memtest86, and I'm able to run that. So it looks
like something about the installation kernel is blocking me.

I've done a bunch of usb driven installs so far with centos-6, i386 and
x86_64 and had zero issues just using dd to get the netinstall image
onto the usb and booting, installing.

Have you taken a look at UNetBootin? I literally never have issues with that software, no matter what iso I throw at it.
