Changes in 3.85:
* vesamenu.c32: unbreak the default "grey hole" background.
+ * We no longer have a built-in default of "linux auto".
+ Instead, if no DEFAULT or UI statement is found, or the
+ configuration file is missing entirely, we drop to the boot:
+ prompt with an error message (if NOESCAPE is set, we stop
+ with a "boot failed" message; this is also the case for
+ PXELINUX if the configuration file is not found.)
Changes in 3.84:
* SYSLINUX: make the DOS installer work for MS-DOS 7.x/8.x
