 Hi,

 Concerning the newer genisoimage binary: where did you get it from? Or 
 did you recompile it yourself? Just curious...
 Concerning elilo: ah, you seem to be the first one using elilo. I think 
 it is better to create an issue for this so it becomes easier for 
 everyone to follow the status and progress of fixed etc...
 And while you are busy perhaps explain how to fix it or what seems to 
 be missing in our code...

 thanks for the report,
 Gratien
