Yes, this one is a bit "over-complicated" (always in quotes) as you
say. I like syslinux because for the basic cases like mine you don't
need more than one short file to edit and maintain, and you are good
to go.
But thanks, this is another little trick, and a good one, which I
may consider to use instead of loading modules.

Best regards.
