directory? I don't see the sense of having the /boot directory containig
only a subdirectory. You already know the boot directory holds boot
manager files, and configuration filenames tells you what boot manager
To my understanding, with isolinux, the two and only two choices are
/boot/isolinux and /isolinux. Though I have in the past put my kernel
and initrd in /boot, with just the isolinux files under /boot/isolinux.
Likewise, just to put all options on the table, a decent argument can
be made for putting /LiveOS under /boot (or just the files therein).

All the configurable defaults in SYSLINUX can be changed by putting a
file called "syslinux.cfg" in the root directory of the boot disk.
This is a text file in either UNIX or DOS format, containing one or
more of the following items (case is insensitive for keywords; upper
case is used here to indicate that a word should be typed verbatim):
Starting with version 3.35, the configuration file can also be in

order.) If that is the case, then all filenames are assumed to be
relative to that same directory, unless preceded with a slash or
