I have a couple of questions, But first....

Thankyou for creating such an easy to use awesome piece of software.

I am wanting to use ISO linux to select two different kernels/configurations 
and have set up the isolinux.cfg file as follows....

DISPLAY start.msg



LABEL linux
  KERNEL vmlinuz
  APPEND root=/dev/ram0 initrd=txtimage.gz

LABEL linux-fb
  KERNEL vmlinuz-fb
  APPEND root=/dev/ram0 initrd=fbimage.gz

After creating the ISO + CD I boot from it and it immediately runs the 
default option 'linux' with no boot: prompt of delay.

I was wondering if these features had actually been implemented yet, or if I 
had missed something.

Also the start.msg doesnt run, or display the image, I have tested it with 
syslinux on a floppy and it works fine.


Linux Rocks!!!
