I used fll-iso-strip and noticed an error that isohybrid couldn't be found. I discovered that I didn't have that executable because I've uninstalled syslinux.

I don't know what is isohybrid for, or if it is only optional, but I would like to suggest that fll-iso2usb recommends syslinux and/or the patch below to be applied:
      Code:
--- fll-iso-strip       2013-09-28 18:28:28.000000000 -0400
+++ fll-iso-strip.syslinux      2013-09-28 18:32:23.000000000 -0400
@@ -33,6 +33,11 @@
        exit
 }
 
+if [ ! -x "$(which isohybrid)" ]; then
+       echo "Error: the isohybrid executable can't be found -- Make sure the syslinux Debian package is installed"
+       exit 1
+fi
+
 if [ -z "${iso}" ]; then
        echo "No iso supplied"
        usage


Thank you

PS: I do understand that isolinux comes in stock aptosid already

isohybrid is what makes the iso bootable as a disk image (i.e. lets you dd/cat/cp it to a usb stick).

Thanks for the report, I'll have a look and a think and try and commit something to improve matters.
