This feature will make Syslinux an optional bootloader for Fedora, in 
kickstart and via a hidden Anaconda option. When used this way, it will 
replace grub2. 

== Detailed description ==
The Syslinux bootloader has been part of Fedora for over a decade. It's been 
well-tested as the loader for the installer, but we've always used something 
else on the installed OS. Newer versions of Syslinux (in the form of a version 
called Extlinux) can boot from ext2/3/4 or from btrfs.
