Can't hold it off any longer... here it is :)

Changes in 2.00:
        * ALL: Add support for "COM32" (32-bit COMBOOT) images.
        * ALL: Add an API for COMBOOT/COM32 images.  See comboot.doc
          for details.  There is a C development environment for
          COM32 being created; it should be ready at some point in
          the future.
        * Fix mbr.asm so that it actually works.
        * SYSLINUX: The syslinux installer *SHOULD* now be safe to
          run setuid root.
        * PXELINUX: Fix bug where PXELINUX would override random
          chunks of the UNDI code segment!  Thanks to Kevin Tran for
          finding this bug.
        * ISOLINUX: Fix a bug related to slashes in pathnames.
        * ISOLINUX: Fix a bug in handling initrds over 128 MB.
        * ALL: Make the <Ctrl-V> key print out the version; this is
          to help debugging.
        * Add a small script, mkdiskimage, to create a DOS-formatted
          hard disk image using mtools.  This may be useful in
          conjunction with MEMDISK.
        * ISOLINUX: Search for a /boot/isolinux directory as well as
        * ALL: Fix a bug related to very long configuration files.
        * PXELINUX: Work around a NASM bug which would result in no
          delay before reset if an error occurs.
