No sure about this, but I think it should be:
0. insterst USB and check in /var/log/syslog that it is
   recongnized as /dev/sda
1. zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sda
2. mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt
3. cp sarge-i386-netinst.iso /mnt
4. umount /mnt   (this will also sync)
5. reboot

The mount command require a partition name (/dev/sda1) and not a disk
name (/dev/sda). If this work then I think the installation manual
should be corrected too.
