linux installer: better error message for missing /tmp
Our linux distribution at my job didn't include a /tmp directory. When ever I tried to use syslinux, I would get the following error: ./syslinux: No such file or directory I modified the code to report this: ./syslinux: Cannot access the /tmp/ directory. This would have helped me a lot rather than having to download the source and run it through the debugger to figure out that my /tmp/ directory was missing. I suspect if this ever happens again I'll know exactly what was wrong, but hopefully it will help someone else.
