Okay, I've done that again. I downloaded daily builds of both files at 
the same time to be sure to have a matching set. I umounted the USB 
stick when Gnome auto-mounted it. I took out the stick after zcatting 
boot.img.gz to it (which I didn't do last time.) Gnome mounted it again, 
so I used that to copy the image onto it. The result looks right when it 
is mounted, but has the same sort of problem when I boot from it. Rows 
of little black dots at the top of the screen this time.

Does the USB stick have to special in any way? A fresh one from the shop 
with FAT32 still on it?

P.S. Sorry that I overlooked your message yesterday.
