    See "man syslinux" for instructions on how to install and use it.

    Generally, you should not install syslinux into an ext* partition. Syslinux is intended for FAT filesystems.

    For example on a USB stick, one tiny partition (FAT) would have syslinux, and a second large partition (ext3) would have Ubuntu.

    This is already done automatically by Startup Disk Creator and Unetbootin and Debian Live and others, so a new user shouldn't need to mess with manually installing syslinux at all.

    What are you trying to really do?
