After all the bug fixes over the last few weeks I thought it was high 
time to release 2.07.  It certainly doesn't fix everything, but it fixes 
several important problems people have reported.

Changes in 2.07:
         * MEMDISK: Workaround for BIOSes which go into a snit when
           they get a RESET command for the floppy system when there is
           no floppy in the system.
         * PXELINUX: Add "ipappend 2", which passes the hardware
           address of the boot interface to the kernel as a
           command-line option.
         * mkdiskimage: fix the generation of the end limit.
         * PXELINUX: Fix multiple bugs in chainloading of other NBPs.
         * MEMDISK: Fix bug that would occationally cause "ran out of
           input data" when using compressed disk images.
         * SYSLINUX: Updates for the win32 installer (from Lars Munch.)
         * PXELINUX: PXELINUX-specific options are now recognized both
           in a vendor-option-space (a.k.a. type 43 encapsulated) as
           well as in a site-option-space (unencapsulated.)
         * COM32: Don't crash when DS != 0.
         * COMBOOT/COM32: Make file reading work correctly.  Thanks to
           Phung Chi Kien for submitting a test program.
