Grub has nothing to do with booting from a CD-ROM. Grub's only purpose is to bootstrap your kernel and initrd.

Erm, yes and no. If he boots GRUB from a floppy, he should be able to start up the image on his CDROM. Not the same thing as a direct boot from the CDROM I'll grant you, but not quite the same thing as "nothing to do with booting from a CD-ROM", either.

I suppose Burnie West doesn't care how, so much as that, he
manages to get the CDROM image booted.

I suppose that re-jumpering your CDROM drive to be the Master
rather than a Slave device might help. But don't leave a CDROM
as a Master to a Slave hard disc permanently. It very likely
will slow down your system.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
