When I press Tab and try to type a custom boot line, it behaves either the same as the menu choices (returning me to the menu) or in case I type the name of a symlink (e.g., /bin/sh, which is a symlink to /bin/bash) in place of kernel image filename, it then reports an error. All of this is in QEMU. The same (outdated) version of QEMU boots another (non-Owl) ISO that also uses ISOLINUX (an older version of it) just fine. I don't know if the same problem would be seen on real hardware or in another VM - haven't tried yet. It is possible that I broke something with my additional changes after yours, but I've already tried reverting many of those changes (in my test ISO build tree) and it didn't make a difference. i686 and x86_64 behave the same (fail in the same way as above). Can you please try to build an ISO from Owl-current with my changes (as currently committed) and see if it works for you? Thanks, Alexander
