    Also grub 1/legacy can do that. I have old laptops which have no BIOS options to boot from USB, and I have been using legacy grub for years to boot USB sticks. Or are you talking about something...

    If you have one tar.gz that works with these different flavors, it is not difficult to make a .deb that also works with all of them.
