See this personalized 2 floppys example with isolinux patched, I still 
thinking gfxboot on syslinux some times is so wonder to see.

wget http://www.compunauta.com/uLinux/MiniLinux/flp.144
dd if=flp.144 of=/dev/fd0
wget http://www.compunauta.com/uLinux/MiniLinux/flp.144.drivers
change the floppy
dd if=flp.144.drivers of=/dev/fd0

boot 1st ask for the 2nd

it cames from SuSE 8.0 professional on DVD Sources, but I can't remember, is 
not easy to build that files, .spl are more simple but you goes mad in try.

it should be OT
