Does anyone know of a system needing the "-safe" disks?

Subject: syslinux -s
I'd like to hear from anyone who has, or know of, a machine for which
the -s option to SYSLINUX is required for it to reliably boot. I need
to know the boot medium (floppy, harddisk, CD-ROM, LS-120, zip),
machine, the failure mode, and if the error is intermittent or not. I
am exploring a way which I hope may make this option unneccesary, at
least in the cases where the failure mode is a "boot failed" message.
