Unhappy Can GRUB Boot from an iso

Hi there, I'm thinking about grub.

I wanna ghost my newly installed FC5, but there's no dos-booting disc at hand. What i have is only a win98 iso...

So I wonder whether grub can boot from a bootable iso image on hd.
If possible, how should I edit the menu.lst.

Can any one tell me the solution?

here's a howto for booting something else from iso, maybe you can modify it to make it work with your iso. This looks like grub at least needs a kernel and initrd, so maybe you won't be able to boot the Win98 iso. You could always boot a Knoppix CD or download a DOS boot disk ( or use the Ultimate Boot CD.
