Will it be possible to customize the current USCD image to use CLI instead of GUI?

It should be quite straightforward to switch to using syslinux (which
does support serial I/O), but you will lose the use of diskemu and bcdw.
The menus will of course have to be converted to plain text.

Victor,
Thank you for the feedback. I am now going to try and create this image. I really have not played around with PC SW before so I may need some help if I run into some problems. Appreciate any pointers.
