Sorry I'm still kind of new, I had a copy of UBCD 4.1.1 used it, loved it, trying to get a new copy (accidentily left mine at a customers)

Here are is Question:

I want to add a few images, I think I have it done for 4.1.1 but just realized after trying 5 times that it doesn't support my usb keyboard and mouse so I can't test it.

if I add the proper images in with the custom.cfg and add the following lines to custom.cfg it should work right?

MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
MENU LABEL ..
KERNEL menu.c32
APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL NTCD2.5.1
MENU LABEL NTCD 2.5.1
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/NTCD2-5-1.img
LABEL DMI 05
MENU LABEL DMI05
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI05.img
LABEL DMI06
MENU LABEL DMI06
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI06.img
LABEL DMI07
MENU LABEL DMI07
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI07.img
LABEL DMI08
MENU LABEL DMI08
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI08.img
LABEL DMI08 rev. b
MENU LABEL DMI08 Rev B
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI08-revb1.img
LABEL DMI09
MENU LABEL DMI09
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/DMI09.img
LABEL HDD DMI
MENU LABEL HDD DMI
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/HDD_DMI.img
LABEL Win98
MENU LABEL Win98
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/win98.img
LABEL Win98SE
MENU LABEL Win98 SE
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/win98se.img
LABEL Win98ME
MENU LABEL Win98 ME
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/custom/win98me.img

I do a lot of warranty HP/Compaq repair and replace MB's so the DMI are Tattoo utilities that allow me to update the new MB so their restore disks will recognize the system, I'd prefer not to carry 11 different CD's, plus call me old fashioned but I still need the occassional Win98 boot disk

will this custom.cfg work?
I also have an old DOS GUI Ghost.exe I've had forever, how can I get to load mouse drivers (USB and PS/2) for it?

Your config file should work.

Enable "USB legacy support' in your BIOS to have a working USB keyboard when you enter the Syslinux Menu (and DOS-based tools).

The only mention of USB in the bios is boot or no boot, it is set to accept bootable usb drives, there is no "enable legacy support"

It will boot to UBCD411 from a usb stick and all then let me hit enter at the

boot: prompt, then the menu loads, and POOF keyboard quits

works fine in UBCD5.0RC1 just more familiar with 4.11

If it works fine in UBCD50, then the problem with UBCD411 is due to an to old version of Syslinux.
Quote:
Changelog Syslinux 3.70:

# Change to the A20 algorithm which *MIGHT* help systems that have systems which freeze when Syslinux is used with USB keyboards. Note that this has been hard do verify, so I would greatly appreciate feedback on it.

http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/Changelog

So if you update all files of the Syslinux package on UBCD to a newer version (at least v3.70, but you better use the last version), your keyboard should work.

Just replace all files in /syslinux (exept ldlinux.sys) and /isolinux.
Then run the Syslinux installer on your USB stick again:
- Open the Command Prompt (type "cmd" in the "Run As..." dialog
- Drag and drop syslinux.exe (/win32 dir of Syslinux) to the Command Prompt window
- Add "-ma -d /syslinux X:" (replace X: with the right drive letter for your USB stick)

It should look similar to this:
Code:
C:\syslinux.exe -ma -d /syslinux X:

If you don't get any text output, the installation went fine.
