Well, bf24 is to be used by people who want a 2.4.x kernel. It should
be used if you have recent hardware with USB keyboard for example.

That's wrong. It won't boot "idepci" on older hardware. Either the menu
works and it will boot, or it won't boot at all. In which case they
should boot on one of the other CDs available.

If they don't select anything at the prompt, and just press enter,
it will boot idepci by default.
