Bug#114522: boot-floppy: rescue floppy does not boot on legacy-free PC?

Package: boot-floppy
Version: 2.2.23-2001-04-15
Severity: wishlist

Just FYI, Potato's rescue floppy does not seem to boot on a legacy-free
PC.  The syslinux versions before 1.50 seem to have bugs on handling
such a PC, and Potato still uses 1.48.

Possibly, the kernel should have USB support compiled in, too.

This issue may require more investigation but unfortunately I do not
have either free time or direct access to such a PC now.  Is Woody's one
ready for such a PC?
