How To Open/Edit/make vesamenu.c32/menu.c32?

Hey crowd, not really a true Newbie, but I have been making multi-distro cd's and need to know how menu.c32, etc files are manipulated, meaning how to open/edit and/or make vesamenu.c32/menu.c32 files?
I don't mean editing the config files, but let's say I wanted to edit the vesamenu.c32 itself?
Is Vesamenu.c32/menu.c32 a binary file?
Basically my isolinux.cfg starts out with "default menu.c32", so I wanted to add BackTrack3 to the DVD, but how can I get it to show up on the menu. Or does the menu just use isolinux.cfg for the menu?

Adding entries to a boot menu is always a matter of editing the bootloader config file. That's were to start.

Hey there,

I know that this post have 2 years, but now at 2012, i have exactly the same question.

I know also that is much more easy edit .cfg files. But i repeat the question:

How can we edit .c32 files ?

My objective is to make a 100% pt_PT ( or pt_BR ) Linux distro :-)

Many thanks
