Bug#812200: installation-guide: Syslinux.cfg snippet in doc is misleading (4.1 Preparing Files for USB Memory)

Source: installation-guide
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

In 4.3.3. Manually copying files to the USB stick — the flexible way,
there is a syslinux.cfg snippet :

default vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz

This particular one does not work for me : kernel panic when mount root.
Seen on jessie / amd64 current hd-images.

I *think* that this conf boots vmlinuz without appending the parameters.
A working minimal conf from syslinux doc, adapted for hd-media is :

LABEL linux
  KERNEL vmlinuz
  APPEND initrd=initrd.gz
