grub not alowing bootable cd's

GRUB does not allow me to boot from a bootable cd. My Bios is set to boot from cd first, and before I ever had GRUB I could just hit a key and the cd would boot, but GRUB never lets me see that screen and instead just happily displays my fedora linux and windows xp.

How can i change grub to be kind to bootable cds?

The iso I burned using NTI Cd maker, instructing it to create a cd from disk image then selecting the iso to burn.

The iso i burned was the Sun Java Desktop, it came on a dvd with a linux magazine. I used a command from windows called winmkiso to create the iso from the dvd, then i burned with NTI as discribed above
