  From the rest of your message, not sure why you mention the need for
grub to boot from cdrom...I thought you were talking about booting from
floppy.  However, if someone really needs cdrom booting capability in
grub, take a look at the Xen virtual machine monitor project at
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/ as the demo CD that
project puts out uses a modified version of grub with this capability.
