Was the target correct on message?
Code:
This installer will setup disk $TARGET to boot only sms.

Have you try it on windows or linux?
Windows use bootinst.bat and linux bootinst.sh.

Well as I see it now, you have no option to boot from usb, only
Code:
Floppy
CD/DVD-ROM
Hard Disk
Network

The only way is to create an iso and boot it as CD/DVD iso image, but this way you can't save changes, unless you set changes to usb drive like
changes=/dev/[usbdevicepath]/save,dat

When finish editing you can copy save.dat on your usb boot drive, so if you boot it on another machine it will have all the changes.

Tracks all the changes in filesystem, so yes software too.
If you are going to use a lot space choose 512 or even 1024 size save.dat.
If you are going to install software you can also create modules, since it will be static data.
Take a look at
http://sms.it-ccs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=82
on how to create modules.

You need to boot with option changes=/sms/save.dat
assuming you have save.dat in your sms folder you will see while booting
"Setting up directory for changes" and your changes path.

If you didn't add it on you sms.cfg press [tab] on boot promt and type it manually.
