SYSLINUX now builds in a Linux environment, using nasm. You need nasm version 2.03 or later (2.07 or later recommended) to build SYSLINUX from source. See http://www.nasm.us/ for information about nasm. "utils/isohybrid" needs the UUID library and following header file, /usr/include/uuid/uuid.h You can get them from the "uuid-dev" package on Debian based systems or from the "libuuid-devel" package on RPM based distributions. There is now a mailing list for SYSLINUX. See the end of syslinux.txt for details. SYSLINUX is: Copyright 1994-2011 H.
