You're right -- I completely skipped that.  Somehow I must have
thought everything was in the boot.img.gz file.  
In my defense, there is some misleading language in the 4.3.1
    "all-in-one file" ... "contains all the installer files ..."
    "To use this image you *only* have to extract it directly to your
    USB stick" (emphasis mine)

I suggest changing "only" to "first".  And perhaps the paragraph
beginning "After that, mount the USB memory stick ...." could be
emphasized somehow (bold face or whatever).

Anyway, sorry for the noise, and thanks and congratulations for the
lenny release.
