the content of /live.log (or /var/log/live.log) would be interesting, yes.

3.71+dfsg-2 was affected with that 'famous' problem of not booting on a
lot of machines. thanks to the bunch of people that have tested version
3.71+dfsg-3 (which has the patch applied from upstreams 3.72pre2 to cope
with empty files), it appears that the 3.71+dfsg-3 version has no new
regressions compared to 3.6x.

however, as someone reported, syslinux still doesn't support some kind
of intel based apple imacs at all, which is a bummer.
