i agree that putting them on the append line is cleaner, but as i read it,
you can also put them on the "default" line, according to the
/usr/share/doc/syslinux/syslinux.doc file:

DEFAULT kernel options...
        Sets the default command line.  If SYSLINUX boots automatically,
        it will act just as if the entries after DEFAULT had been typed
        in at the "boot:" prompt, except that the option "auto" is
        automatically added, indicating an automatic boot.

  i think i'll stick with adding the extra stanza.  thanks.
