Ok so I formated a drive with the latest version of SysLinux, so that it contains ldlinux.sys and ldlinux.c32. Problem is it doesn't say what file it's looking for next, nor does it give me a prompt to type in the name of a file to use as the kernel. In older versions (which I was previously experimenting with), it would say that it couldn't find a kernel file automatically, and present me with a prompt to type the name of the kernel file into (in case it was present, but didn't have a standard name that it was looking for automatically). But now it doesn't do that. It appears to skip even tryping to bootup from SysLinux, and go straight to the next boot device in the BIOS (in my case, this is a network boot). If SysLinux isn't giving me feedback, how am I supposed to know what it expects next? I assume that I need a kernel file next (if it's the same as older versions), but I don't know this with 100% certainty. I really REALLY would like the creators of SysLinux to put the boot prompt back into their OS, so that I can once again know what SysLinux is expecting to happen next.


Assuming that this feature is sadly not going to be added back into SysLinux, I request that somebody with extreme knowledge of the latest version of SysLinux, tells me what other files I need in order to make SysLinux boot properly.
