@@ -100,34 +100,3 @@ The ISO 9660 filesystem is encapsulated in a partition (which starts
at offset zero, which may confuse some systems.) This makes it
possible for the operating system, once booted, to use the remainder
of the device for persistent storage by creating a second partition.

-WARNING: This feature depends on BIOS functionality which is
-apparently broken in a very large number of BIOSes. Therefore, this
-may not work on any particular system. No workaround is possible; if
-you find that it doesn't work please complain to your vendor and
-indicate that "BIOS INT 13h AX=4C00h fails."
-
-To boot DOS, or other real-mode operating systems (protected-mode
-operating systems may or may not work correctly), using ISOLINUX, you
-need to prepare a disk image (usually a floppy image, but a hard disk
-image can be used on *most* systems) with the relevant operating
-system. This file should be included on the CD-ROM in the /isolinux
-directory, and have a .img extension. The ".img" extension does not
-have to be specified on the command line, but has to be explicitly
-specified if used in a "kernel" statement in isolinux.cfg.
-
-For a floppy image, the size of the image should be exactly one of the
-following:
-
- 1,228,800 bytes - For a 1200K floppy image
- 1,474,560 bytes - For a 1440K floppy image
- 2,949,120 bytes - For a 2880K floppy image
-
-Any other size is assumed to be a hard disk image. In order to work
-on as many systems as possible, a hard disk image should have exactly
-one partition, marked active, that covers the entire size of the disk
-image file. Even so, hard disk images are not supported on all
-BIOSes.
