Thank you, Werner!  It just so happens (although I had NOT stated this!) 
that the thumb-drive / usb-stick is formatted ext2 bootable.  I have a 
very recent copy of SuperGrub, but have not yet copied it (back!) to 
the thumb-drive.  I have (VERY briefly) reviewed the extensive 
information on the web-site for which you kindly supplied a link.  I 
saw LOTS of VERY valuable information -- but I did not (yet!) spot the 
information on getting the ISO workably onto the thumb-drive.  I trust 
that this is due to how rapidly I tried to scan so much information.

I notice that there is a suggestion to use ext2 for SuperGRUB and ext3 
for all other files; that IS "interesting" to consider -- and, I 
suspect, very wise if the full OS is going to be operational on the 
thumb-drive itself.
