The command is

cat isofile.iso > /dev/sdb

Look - it is 'b', not 'b1'. isofile.iso is written to the whole device,
not to a partition on it.

Put tigon_tg3.bin on the root of usb2. Make sure it is a FAT16 partition
*and* is formatted with mkfs.vfat. Only insert usb2 when the installer
asks for firmware. Write down *exactly* what it says and make a note of
*exactly* what happens.

There is another way to proceed if the firmware is not loaded but let us
see what happens first.
