Extracting the .iso to the root partition (/dev/sdc1), then change;
/isolinux/isolinux.cfg > /isolinux/syslinux.cfg
/isolinux > /syslinux
What Doesn't Work;
Attempts to place the extracted .iso files in a different folder.
Extracted to root.................................................
autorun.inf install pool syslinux wubi.exe
casper md5sum.txt preseed ubuntu
dists pics README.diskdefines umenu.exe
I renamed the isolinux folder to syslinux, and renamed the file inside from isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg, works great!
How do I correct the 'syslinux.cfg' if I wish to move 'all' the above files into a directory 'hardy', and place the syslinux.cfg in the root directory ?

How do you correctly change all paths to reflect the 'hardy' folder ?
I tried this but it didn't work... it finds the kernel & initrd.gz ok but then hangs and dumps into a busybox. It didn't like the paths for boot= and file=.

append file=/hardy/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=/hardy/casper initrd=/hardy/casper/initrd.gz
