Alternative boot CD with syslinux for non-eltorito BIOSes and system without floppy - tavvva - 09-03-2012 06:43 PM

We just received this request from Rayjingstorm (IRC channel). I'll investigate how to deal with this situation, since I found a computer where syslinux failed and GRUB worked well. We could either offer users two installation CDs or create a syslinux CD, that would start the SmartBoot Manager module ....

It seems the smartboot manager approach has been tested and works ....
