This should only be done if and only if syslinux can completely replace
grub-legacy. This is not the case until it doesn't support multiboot
systems. Chainloading of different linux distros from different
partitions is not possible in syslinux as far as I know.
If syslinux will hopefully once support multiboot systems I'll second
And that grub-legacy is not developed anymore by upstream doesn't
mean that it doesn't work anymore. For me it's still stable and has
more features than syslinux.
