I have built my combo using ubcd basic 3.3, slax 5.0.1 and ubcd4win 2.5 (adding INSERT doesn't fit on a 700mb cdrom with the other stuff I'm using)

But with the command bcdw Boot /isolinux.bin I get INSERT starting instead of slax!

I'm pretty sure that the problem is correlated with the isolinux folder (especially isolinux.cfg); if I remove that folder I get slax starting (but of course all the other isolinux-based images stops working)

How to have slax starting instead of insert?

I'm totally sure that the isolinux.bin file in the root of the cd is from slax (in fact slax works removing the isolinux folder)

CDShell looks for isolinux.bin in the /isolinux directory. See if
slax has an isolinux.cfg and if it does, put it in the /isolinux
dir. If not, delete isolinux.cfg from the diretory. Remove your
isolinux.bin from the root directory and use the one CDShell
provided in /isolinux/isolinux.bin. Then change your bcdw line
to: "bcdw Boot /isolinux/isolinux.bin"

Tnx for the help now slax starts properly.

Other than isolinux.cfg I copied all the root of slax in the linuxiso folder, to include the kernel, the splash screen etc etc.
