Sorry, I was quite away lately because of some personal stuff, next time
please Cc me or write to me directly so that I read it when I'm not reading
the lists.

BTW... I hope I can get back up to date with lists and my debian-cd stuff
soon :-)

What I did was just to change the isolinux_banner string at isolinux.asm,
this is the patch of my changes:
