syslinux setting change to grub, or grub change to syslinux.
 
1. I already have a linux boot cd one of linux distro(live cd), .iso using syslinux, so how to convert it to use USB pen drive to boot and use it.

2. Now that linux bootable cd(one of linux distro) is using syslinux(isolinux), so if want to change to grub how?



This is one of example from syslinux(CD bootdisk):

default linux

label linux
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=2 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label manual
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=5 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label config
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=7 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label install
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=4 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label lilo
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=3 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label disable
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=3 DISABLEZEN=1 CDBOOT=YES showopts

label enable
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=67584 vga=0x0314 splash=silent mode=3 ENABLEZEN=1 CDBOOT=YES showopts

You can of course edit 'isolinux.cfg' just like you can edit 'grub/menu.lst' .
Not quite sure what you want, but some info here :
