I use pretty well the whole package when it comes to syslinux.  Syslinux 
for floppies/hd's/usb keys, isolinux for cd's, pxelinux for network, and 
memdisk just about everywhere (syslinux/pxelinux/isolinux and even 
grub/lilo).  So it would be sad if the work stopped on syslinux as I 
find it a very useful tool that can be used for just about any OS.

I too have used isolinux to create my own Slackware Live CD.
