I have experienced the same problem under FC6 on
1. IBM NetVista Type 6569-TAG
2. DELL PowerEdge 1300

ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright [...]
Missing parameter in config file.
Unknown keyword in config file [3 times]
Could not find kernel image: linux

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-02-23 20:43:02 UTC
Either this isn't happening with a more recent boot.iso or I'm not fast enough
to see it.  Does it tell you which parameter is missing, or is there some way to
verify an isolinux config file on a running system?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-02-23 21:09:55 UTC
This seems to work OK now.
