Comboot modules utilize the Syslinux Comboot API to provide features to a few niche cases. These are loaded using the kernel option with a special ending of .com or .c32. Comboot modules are special as they don't actually leave the PXE stack, and instead just invoke the Comboot API enabling items like DMI parsing, evaluating CPU flags, scanning the PCI bus, staging up multiple images at once, etc! If the module fails to load properly, then you are still in the syslinux stack and things are returned to the original syslinux state (for the most part).

Below are the currently documented comboot modules.
