Bug Description

OS: Windows 7 starter (also tried on Fedora 13 with root privilege)
PC: Acer Aspire One, 1Gb ram, 160Gb HD
UNetbootIn: Windows-491

The Puppeee 4.4 distrobution is in a zip form instead of ISO, So I need to select custom kernel to seup bootable USB. But the UNetBootin interface only have the ISO option. The entire custom Kernel section is not visible

However, because the ISO option can use anything that 7-zip can extract (including zip files), it may just work if you supply the zip file itself to the ISO option.

Thank you.  I use an older version and found the interface.

nice suggestion with the zip file in the iso field.
What about renaming the iso dropdown to iso/zip.
Additionally i was irritated by the screenshots which shows the kernel/initrd/options fields and not having it in the current .exe.

To give my two cents: For me it doesn't clitter the interface.
