SIBLO has been written for Simplux, it is a revisited syslinux with added direct chainloading of NT type of loaders, like NTLDR or SETUPLDR.BIN.

Wow, thank you jaclaz "the finder". It looks interesting, I need to experiment with it and compare with grub4dos.
Hope that it can directly boot an iso file.

Nice find indeed.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)

The syntax seems simple too:
CODE

prompt 1
timeout 0
default 1
say 1 Linux
say 2 Bart PE
say 3 Bart PE / RAM-Disk
say 4 RAM-Test (memtest86)
say 5 RAM-FS
label 1
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=initrd.gz PMEDIA=usbflash
label 2
ntloader setupldr.xp
label 3
ntloader setupldr.2k3
label 4
kernel memdisk
append initrd=memtest.ima
label 5
kernel ramboot
append initrd=rbdisk.ima PMEDIA=usbflash

I tried different things under QEMU:
Some entries are a little long under QEMU, first time I thought that it hang.

CODE
prompt 1
timeout 0
default 1
say 1 Puppy Linux
say 2 Bart PE
say 3 Bart PE / RAM-Disk
say 4 RAM-Test (memtest86)
say 5 RAM-FS
say 6 ntldr
say 7 grldr
say 8 bootmgr
say 9 io.sys
say 0 pqmagic
say 10 bootflp.bss
label 1
  kernel puppyk
  append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=puinitrd.gz
label 2
  ntloader setupldr.xp
label 3
  ntloader setupldr.2k3
label 4
  kernel memdisk
  append initrd=memtest.ima
label 5
  kernel ramboot
  append initrd=rbdisk.ima PMEDIA=usbflash
label 6
  ntloader ntldr
label 7
  ntloader grldr
label 8
  ntloader bootmgr
label 9
  ntloader io.sys
label 0
  kernel /images/memdisk
  append initrd=/images/pmagic8.ima
label 10
  kernel bootflp.bss
  append -




#1 OK
#2, #3, #6 OK
#7 OK. Important, since then grub4dos can be used to load bootmgr for example.
#9 not OK. Normal since probably not the right syntax, refer to #10.
#0, #4 OK
#8 get error message: NT loader size is too big!
#10 not OK, it hang.
#5 not tested.


So looks like siblo is less capable then grub4dos at the moment. Also no scrollable menu list,
no edit capability, no setup for keyboard etc...
