|VMWare's KB gives instructions for creating a usb installer using Linux, but fails to warn you that only Syslinux version 3.28 works. Modern distros come with 6.03 which won't work.
Instead of extracting the ISO I found a better way using Syslinux MEMDISK.
Credit to SteveB05 for the great idea and example.
