Question seen, but not understood.

To me is syslinux a bootloader, started by (Hardware) BootROM
and it starts a Linux kernel.

So now the question that I see / read as:

I have a running Linux kernel (or simular environment)
and want to start with kexec the Syslinux bootloader (to start Linux)

@Original Poster
Please elaborate the question.
