Hm.  I have at least one box on which it (extlinux, in particular) still 
doesn't work; it unfortunately happens to be the machine on which 
zytor.com is hosted; worse, it doesn't work correctly with either GRUB 
(standard RAID1-being-braindead crap) or current versions of LILO for 
reasons I can't figure out (it used to work, but broke when I upgraded 
the box to FC3; even if I try to install a newer version of LILO instead 
of the prehistoric one RedHat insists on shipping...)

It works with ISOLINUX, and that's actually how I'm currently booting 
this machine.  Hardly ideal, but it's a painful box to troubleshoot on 
since so much depends on it.

It's a Supermicro 370SSR/370SSE motherboard with an Intel i815 chipset, 
so I guess I'll keep rooting...
