    1212Summary
     
    3636https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/niflheim/PXE-booting web-page.
    3737
    38 We include the SYSLINUX documentation files in the syslinux-doc/ directory,
    39 since this documentation is not available on the SYSLINUX web-pages.
    40 Start by reading the README file and syslinux.doc if you want to
    41 understand the configuration file syntax.
    42 
    4338What's included
    4439---------------
     
    6156The most important files included in the pxemenu/ directory are:
    6257
    63   pxelinux.0 memdisk com32/menu.c32 com32/chain.c32: Binary files from the
    64          SYSLINUX project which are needed for the usual booting methods.
    65   com32/*.c32: All SYSLINUX 3.52 COM32 files, see the SYSLINUX comboot.doc.
     58  pxelinux.0 memdisk Binary files from the SYSLINUX 4.02 which are needed
     59         for the usual booting methods.
     60  com32/*.c32: A few SYSLINUX 4.02 COM32 files, see the SYSLINUX source doc/comboot.txt.
    6661  pxelinux.cfg/default.menu: The main PXE menu configuration file which
    6762         loads all the other PXE menus listed below.
     
    7166         to do on a Linux cluster for unattended operation, but for other uses
    7267         the timeout can be commented out so that the menus will wait forever.
    73   syslinux-doc: Documentation files from the SYSLINUX source.
    74          You may want to read the files README.menu, and for further details
    75          also syslinux.doc and pxelinux.doc.
    7668
    7769Example PXE menu files
     
    8678          IMPORTANT: Always keep all images related to one type of hardware
    8779          in the same subdirectory so that you don't mix up different hardwares !
    88   ghost/: Example of some Norton Ghost 2003 DOS boot diskette images.
    8980  Tools/: Example of some diagnostics tools, including Memtest86.
    9081          The vendor disk diagnostics tools you must download yourself
     
    120111(assuming that the diskette drive on your Linux PC is /dev/fd0).

    122 Ultimate Boot CD tools
    123 ----------------------
    124 
    125 If you want a huge selection of boot disks, you may want to look at the
    126 Ultimate Boot CD (UBC) project, see http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ for
    127 information about this project.
    128 
    129 All of the UBC tools can be made available within the PXE menus, see
    130 https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/niflheim/PXE-booting#boot-images-from-ultimatebootcd-com
    131 Basically, just copy the contents of the UBC CD to /tftpboot and use the menu entry
    132 in pxeconfig.cfg/default.menu to use the UBC tools from the PXE menus.  It's
    133 that simple !
    134 
    135 What doesn't work
    136 -----------------
    137 
    138 Many people have asked on the SYSLINUX mailing list how to boot ISO CD
    139 images using SYSLINUX or PXELINUX.  The short FAQ answer from the SYSLINUX
    140 author H. Peter Anvin is that it's impossible because of the ways CD-ROM drives
    141 are implemented in BIOSes.  See for example
    142 http://syslinux.zytor.com/archives/2006-December/007818.html
