Booting Fedora-12 from hard disk, again, again



I'm taking the liberty of re-posting this query,
as there seemed some problems with the previous posting,
hopefully now resolved:

Has anyone actually succeeded in booting Fedora-12
from the DVD ISO file on the hard disk,
by adding a stanza to grub.conf ?

I carried out the following commands:
-----------------------------
[tim alfred ~]$ sudo mkdir /mnt/Fedora
[tim alfred ~]$ sudo mount -o loop Fedora-12-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/Fedora/
[tim alfred ~]$ ls /mnt/Fedora/isolinux/
boot.cat  boot.msg  grub.conf  initrd.img  isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg  splash.jpg  TRANS.TBL  vesamenu.c32  vmlinuz
[tim alfred ~]$ ls /mnt/Fedora/images/
efiboot.img  efidisk.img  install.img  pxeboot  README  TRANS.TBL
[tim alfred ~]$ mkdir images
[tim alfred ~]$ cp -a /mnt/Fedora/images/install.img images/
[tim alfred ~]$ sudo mkdir /boot/Fedora-12
[tim alfred ~]$ sudo cp -a /mnt/Fedora/isolinux/* /boot/Fedora-12/
-----------------------------

This is the entry I have added to /etc/grub.conf :
-----------------------------
title Upgrade to Fedora-12
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /Fedora-12/vmlinuz ro
        initrd /Fedora-12/initrd.img
-----------------------------

Now when I boot into this, all goes well
until I try to install from Fedora-12*.iso when I the error
"Device /dev/sda6 does not appear to contain
an installation image".

Am I doing something wrong?
