Great.  :)

Both FreeDOS and MS-DOS should now be able to access the CD after booting via 
the ELTORITO.SYS driver.  (There was a problem with using the older version of 
ELTORITO.SYS as shipped with FreeDOS; this has now been fixed in iPXE.)

If you can find an image that doesn't work with iPXE but _does_ work with 
memdisk, that would be interesting.  I haven't yet had time to try out the 
ntfs.com/Vista cases with memdisk.
