       isohybrid - Postprocess ISO images for hybrid mode

       isohybrid [OPTIONS] IMAGE

       Starting	 in  version 3.72, ISOLINUX supports a "hybrid mode" which can
       be booted from either CD-ROM or from a device which  BIOS  considers  a
       hard disk or ZIP disk, e.g. a USB key or similar.
