@ Victor
The cpu.cfg file contains errors.
The cmdhelpinfo= works only when ubcdcmd=helpinfo is set (so remove it from the other entries).

Code:
Helpinfo: helpinfo
---------

The following isolinux entry will run Helpinfo:

    KERNEL /ubcd/boot/cpustres/bzImage
    APPEND initrd=/ubcd/boot/cpustres/initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0
           ramdisk_size=12000 noapic ubcdcmd=helpinfo

The following isolinux entry will run Helpinfo for cpuburn:

    KERNEL /ubcd/boot/cpustres/bzImage
    APPEND initrd=/ubcd/boot/cpustres/initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0
           ramdisk_size=12000 noapic ubcdcmd=helpinfo cmdhelpinfo=cpuburn

ubcdcmd=mprime24 mprime is also wrong. Just use ubcdcmd=mprime24. Similar for other entries.

I changed the Stress entry text (removed the "disk stress" part, because it is not supported, added info about the cmdstress parameter). I also added cmdstress="--help" to the APPEND command line (not nessecary) so it is easier for users to change "--help" to their preferred parameters for stress.

Thanks! I have fixed up cpu.cfg exactly as you indicated.
