Boot Linux Kernel from GRUB
I am relatively a newbie to the Linux world. I wanted to create a bootable CD for my Dual boot machine (I am running RH 9.0 on a 120GB IDE Hard Drive)...
I got an article online to download the mkCDRec rpm and make a bootable CD through it. I was successful to write the bootable CD and was even able to boot from the CD.
But the problem is that the system boots throught the CD and goes to the command prompt... Only then I realized that this is just reading from the CD and it is not able to load the kernel that is present in my /boot partition... I even tried mounting the /boot partition to the /mnt/local folder... and it shows files like grub, vmlinux..., etc., I am not able to start Xwindows from this point, neither am I able to see all the files in my system unless I explicitly mount the /dev/hdax to some directory...
I want to load Linux from a CD just as how it boots from a floppy.... Can anyone please help me?
