Please give more details what *exactly* happened. syslinux doesn't overwrite any bios,
if this happened this seems to be more a hardware problem on your side. Also this
hasn't been reported before. So if it's some  problem with the bios please complain to
your hardware/bios vendor.

BTW: Do you use the syslinux from fedora or the one downloaded from zytor.com?
