Title: syslinux
Version: 3.80
Entered-date: 2009-05-04

Description: SYSLINUX is a collection of boot loaders for the Linux
operating system which operates off Linux ext2/3
filesystems, MS-DOS FAT filesystems, network servers
using PXE firmware, or from CD-ROMs. The FAT
filesystem version can be installed from DOS, NT, or
Linux.

It includes a sophisticated API for add-on "COM32"
modules, including a significant subset of the
standard C library.

It also includes MEMDISK, a tool to boot legacy
operating systems from nontraditional media like PXE
or CD-ROM.

This version includes gPXE, to allow accessing network
files via other protocols than TFTP.
