How do I get my Mac to boot from an Ubuntu USB key?

I followed the step by step instructions set forth here but none of my macs (all intel) will recognize the stick as bootable

diskutil list shows the following

/dev/disk7 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *4.0 GB disk7 1: 0x17 735.3 MB disk7s1

thoughts or help or are the instructions just plain wrong


Try reformatting the USB key to HFS+ in Disk Utility and making the (only) partition GUID, which is what the Mac expects of any bootable drive.
