I'm having the same problem with kubuntu 8.04 hardy and it seems to be
an issue with syslinux

one workaround is to edit cf/syslinux/syslinux.cfg and change the line::

   default vesamenu.c32


   default linux0

near the beginning of the file; you lose the graphical boot choice
screen, but at least the stick works.

do you know what versions of syslinux are on your ubuntu and on the
fedora machine that worked?
