Huh.  Don't know what that's about.  I've never seen such a thing.  To 
boot, are you pressing ESC and then selecting the USB stick to boot 
from?  If so, are there two entries for it (as some U3 keys will show 
you a 2nd entry if it emulates a CDROM)?  If so, try both?

It will be stomped on by the zcat, so no, it doesn't matter what was on 
it before that.

No problem.
