Perhaps someone knows another tools. Syslinux' main advantage is
in my eyes that it exists and works. I think it was neighter made for
this usage (but for beeing able to create such disks from DOS, when
I didn't misread anything), nor optimal for the usage. (Do we really
need a FAT-Table on something that is write-once?)
