+Starting with version 3.35, the configuration file can also be in
+either the /boot/syslinux or /syslinux directories (searched in that
+order.) If that is the case, then all filenames are assumed to be
+relative to that same directory, unless preceded with a slash or
+backslash.
All options here applies to PXELINUX, ISOLINUX and EXTLINUX as well as
SYSLINUX unless otherwise noted. See the respective .doc files.
