Linux multi tool boot cd
 
I want to make a cd similar to the UBCD.
But i want to make it with GRUB.
how do i load the bootable images using the GRUB menu.
and also how can i run dos apps with grub after loading a dos bootdisk.
I want to select the dosapp from the GRUB menu which will load the dosbootdisk and then execute the dosapp without need to type the appname in the dos cmd line.
What multiboot kernelimage should i load before loading the modules or the boot time apps?

You can use memdisk ( http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/MEMDISK )

But please note it can only load harddisk or floppy image.

If you have ISO, you need to convert it into HD image first.

Simple way is to create a new HD image and format it as fat32.

Afterwards, make the HD to be bootable using syslinux :D

To create menu, you can point the default to "menu.c32" (in the syslinux.cfg)

Thanks for the answer, but i wanted to know if there was any alternative ti memdisk for GRUB.
I have decided to use memdisk from syslinux project.
