Just a minor suggestion (and a way for me to vent?)...

There is a "search" box in the official wiki. Searching for "linux.c32" 
might result in some relevant info (assuming that the wiki is 

I am aware that, for a user to be able to perform such search, the user 
would need to know about the existence of this c32 module, or at least 
about Syslinux's configuration syntax. OK, so how about searching for 
"config", or "configuration", or "menu", or "COM32", or "KERNEL-LIKE 
DIRECTIVES", or something. I sincerely hope it helps.

FWIW, the _need_ to use linux.c32 is becoming more common (in the sense 
that other loading methods are not always capable of loading 
newer/current kernels+initrams+additional_files, considering their 
sizes). Unfortunately, only a minority of users seem to be aware of 
Syslinux's syntax and modules, while the Syslinux-related packages are, 
generally speaking and IMO, not reaching the level of 
maintenance/support that common users seem to expect.
