...but not installable (I did not try, though), because you do:

# ISOLINUX doesn't respect symlinks :(
mv "$KERNEL_NAME" vmlinuz

whereas in owl-setup we have:

/* RPM'ed kernel - only copy the symlink */
    the_iface->ExecWindow("Symlinking the default kernel...");
    ExecAndWait(the_config->CpPath().c_str(),
                "-pP",
                the_config->DefaultKernel().c_str(),
                the_config->TargetKernel().c_str(), (const char *)0);

Please correct this in some way, maybe by patching syslinux to respect
symlinks (while doesn't it?)

Thanks,

Alexander
