Burn a grub 2 boot disk


Hi, would someone please direct me to a link or two that covers how to burn a grub 2 boot up disk? I have the grub 2 tar file from their site.

Thanks for your expertise!

EDDY1 is correct that we may need to know where you got the tar file from to be sure.

I got the tar file here: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub-download.html I wanted to create my own like I did somehow with grub legacy but I'll take whatever I can get. I do have bareso. I have a few system-rescue cds but I get into trouble with mass produced linux fixes.

Super-grub2 disk is just a boot disk whiich will allow you to boot os, so that you can do repairs from within the os.

With brasero insert cd, open brasero, select burn & navigate to iso.

My guess is that tar file contains source for building a grub on your system.

Few people would build it but see this for a way to make your tar file and install it.

Thanks for the replies!

I currently don't have a installed system that has grub 2 installed.
Can I remove grub .97 and manually install grub 2 so I can burn a rescue disk? Mageia's MCC does not allow it but I assume I can do it CLI. I don't think that grub .97 has mkrescue. Do I need any grub files on the O.S to boot or is it all externally done if I manually boot with grub?
Code:
[root@localhost kbs]# grub --help
Usage: grub [OPTION]...

Enter the GRand Unified Bootloader command shell.

    --batch                  turn on batch mode for non-interactive use
    --boot-drive=DRIVE       specify stage2 boot_drive [default=0x0]
    --config-file=FILE       specify stage2 config_file [default=/boot/grub/menu.lst]
    --device-map=FILE        use the device map file FILE
    --help                   display this message and exit
    --hold                   wait until a debugger will attach
    --install-partition=PAR  specify stage2 install_partition [default=0x20000]
    --no-config-file         do not use the config file
    --no-curses              do not use curses
    --no-floppy              do not probe any floppy drive
    --no-pager               do not use internal pager
    --preset-menu            use the preset menu
    --probe-second-floppy    probe the second floppy drive
    --read-only              do not write anything to devices
    --verbose                print verbose messages
    --version                print version information and exit

Report bugs to <bug-grub@gnu.org>.
Code:
 GNU GRUB  version 0.97  (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)

 [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
   lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
   completions of a device/filename. ]

grub> grub-mkrescue

Error 27: Unrecognized command
Or
Code:
[root@localhost kbs]# mkrescue
bash: mkrescue: command not found
And lastly http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...3.el6.i686.rpm
