Summary:  Grub cannot work with memdisk

Original Submission:  Memdisk is a utility from the syslinux project which 
a bootloader to set up a ramdisk image of a floppy or
hard disk.  It allows us to boot, for example, DOS from
a virtual floppy, which is very useful for maintaining
machines we have here.  Syslinux treats memdisk as a
Linux kernel and the disk image as a ramdisk.  Grub sees
memdisk as a linux kernel, but if we attempt to boot
it with an image as initrd, it just hangs.  Samples
can be provided on request.
