I dusted off my trusty YUMI usb stick, installed TinyCore-4.6.iso, and tested the iso boot parameter.

Both iso=LABEL="MULTIBOOT" and iso=UUID="6417-C033" both worked as expected.

I also tested:
sudo fromISOfile LABEL="MULTIBOOT" and sudo fromISOfile UUID="6417-C033" and they both worked as expected.

it'll be not too hard again to add a cdelst and isolst boot params if it's not too late for 4.6.
Thanks roberts

Not sure I understand isolst. The iso boot code and fromISOfile already handle access to inside an iso image file.

Why do we need cdelst as it would not be convienent to enter such using cdrom.
CorePlus was designed to be an installation disk not a live distro. cde signals that such is to be treated as read-only so too would be any such list such as the installation lists used by tc-install.

If the medium is writable then should be using tce or a named tce directory. But, perhaps, I do not understand your requirements.

Hi
I'd like to have isolst so I can choose which lst to be loaded inside the iso, if no isolst is passed or no 2nd parameter is passed to fromISOfile then standard onboot.lst inside the iso will be procesed.
Concerning cdelst why do u want to make such a limitation to CorePlus? For some reasons I could decide to use such iso to have 2 separeted extensions dir, the cde for example for my personal base extensions and the normal tce dir for optionals.
I don't think those changes will require much work.
Thanks Robert for the answer.
