Have you tried formatting the SD card into FAT32? AFAIK, Syslinux does not support NTFS.
I don't think the fact that it's a card and not a USB stick matters, as I've succesfully made a bootable SD card with Sabayon 5.3 LXDE just a couple of weeks ago using UNetBootin.linuxnoobEEEPC wrote:I have mounted the ISO with virtual clone drive and then i drag and dropped all the files over to the SD card.

Just format the card into FAT32. Do not copy any file on it.
Then run UNetbootin, select the iso of Sabayon and the drive you put the card into, and let UNetbootin do its job.
After that the card should be bootable, no other action is needed.

In LXDE you have to install Compiz manually through equo/Spritz.

One last thing; what is the diffrence between Compiz & KWin?
DanySK wrote:On GNOME, click on the Fusion Icon on the desktop. On KDE, KWin should be running by default. If you are using an AMD HDxxxx you may need to go to the system settings->desktop and enable the "disable functionality checks" checkbox.

KWin is more essential and has a FAR better desktop grid, but in the other hand it is better integrated with the DE. Personally, after an year with GNOME+Compiz I switched to KDE+Kwin: all the things I use (dodge, magic lamp, present windows, desktop grid, desktop zoom, cover switch, draw on screen) are working pefectly and I have also better DE integration. I also get bored of the cube and now I just use desktops in a grid.
If you have an USB drive larger than 2GB, download both and use Unetbootin to create a bootable drive, test them in live and choose the one which impresses you more. You won't waste any DVD this way.
