I wonder whether anybody can tell me how to use syslinux to boot grub4dos:
LABEL grub
MENU LABEL
kernel grub.exe
append --config-file="(fd0)/menu.lst"
Is it right?

KERNEL grub.exe

may be ur usb is not get seen as super floppy , thats why adding " fd0" is giving u problem may be ? is it lead u to command line or not ?

I see that your crystal ball is working remarkably well ;), since there is NO reference whatsoever that USB is involved at all in the OP question. ;)

A side note :) , in English there is a three letter pronoun "you":
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/you
and a letter "u":
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/u

The fact that in SMS's a common (and very bad) use of letter "u" instead of the pronoum "you" is made, and of "ur" as a substitute for "your", does NOT justify your use of them metodically on a techinical board.

Come on, you have a full-fledged keyboard before you (or at least I hope so :)), you are kindly invited to use it properly.

Just think at the people that will use an online translation. :D

Take a look at post 52 and 54 on http://www.boot-land...?...=5187&st=50.

If you use grldr instead of grub.exe, the chain.c32 or BOOT command will set the boot drive to the current drive, so grub4dos will first look on the this disk for its menu.lst file.
