first of all: syslinux is really a good bootloader and since there is isolinux
making boot-cds is fun -- thanks for the great work.

I had some problems with syslinux-1.71 loading l bigger 2.4.18-kernel. The
error was something like "Boot failed: press any key ..." that brought my back
to the boot-prompt of syslinux.
A check with syslinux-1.67 showed no problems.

Sizes of the kernels:
	$ du -k 2418*
	592     2418.01
	612     2418.02

2418.01 works fine with 1.71 but 2418.02 does not. Both work with 1.67.

If you need more information please let me know.
