You're doing it the wrong way. A .iso file is something to burn to a CD; it's
not a native file format. You need to mount the .iso and copy fhe contents to
the flash disk. I'm not certain how you would need to format the flash disk,
though I suspect that NetBSD format is correct. You'll also have to make sure
there's a boot sector and a disk label.
I think there's more, but I'm not certain what it would be.
