It is not that nice, as it has exactly the same limitation as
optical drive itself - the kernel must fit in a 2.88 Mb ElTorito
"floppy" area.

I have to deal with different hardware on a regular basis, so
my kernels are really big.

I'll try SysLinux in the first place and patching the kernel in
the second, thus leaving this brain-damaged PoS (the "S" stands
for "Software") as a last resort.
