Hello Helmut,

You should still use UI vesamenu.c32 anyway. That's the adequate 
directive for your case.

Additionally, current ISOLINUX is capable of finding 
"/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg" as well as your 
"/isolinux/isolinux.cfg". So to reduce potential problems, I would 
suggest using "/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg" in the ISO image (and no 
"/isolinux/" directory), then adapt any scripts to it, then mkisofs 
and then isohybrid. It should work for CD and for USB drives.

Best Regards,
