I gave up in frustration trying to get a usb-stick to boot correctly in
the past (OP appears to have got further than I had in that respect).
Setting up a dhcpd and tftpd for netboot on a spare machine was
difficult but was the route I eventually went down.

jlquinn is correct, I believe: it sounds like the OP has copied the .iso
file onto the memory stick's filespace, rather than over it.
