[syslinux] Problems with isolinux.cfg

I tried to do sometihng similar some time ago.... (to let my user base
edit the http://thinstation.sf.net LiveCD to change the default config)
The problem is that changing the ISO of a BOOTABLE cd is a delicate
thing, as there are in the CD some absolute reference that will be
broken by the CD reorganization done by an ISO-editor after a change...
(in particular the pointers written by mkisofs in the headers of
isolinux.bin, I think...)
A solution could have been to simply add another session... (files will
remain in their place) but I've not been able to add a session to an CD
burned from a .ISO (is there some reason these CD are "closed"?).
My solution is to copy all the file of the CD in a folder, change what I
need, and relauncing "mkisofs" with all the options to get it
bootable... This worked pretty well for me.
I can mail you a little "package" with mkisofs for windows and a .BAT
that launch it with the correct params... let me know,
