Create bootable iso from linux folder using windows or boot from win bootloader

I've windows xp installed and i've Linux folder(which i copied from linux installation dvd) in c:\linux and i want to install linux from it so i think there r two options,
1.make bootable iso from this folder and write this iso on dvd/cd to install.
2.use windows boot loader to install linux from hard disk.
I tried second option by adding entry c:\grldr="start grub" in boot.ini and copy "grldr in c:\" and copy two files vmlinuz/initrd.img in c:\boot folder and edit entry in menu.lst in c:\boot\grub\menu.lst

title install linux

but it is not installing linux.grub
I will be really appretiate if any body answer this in detail.
