Smile Posible convert syslinux,isolinux to GRUB?

Hi, now i have a linux LIVECD is using ISOLINUX to boot. But i want to make a USB stick to boot this LIVECD, but i want to using GRUB to boot, is it posible to boot from USB stick load GRUB bootloader then boot to isolinux?

Any document about syslinux, isolinux to GRUB boot setting parameter, then can easy convert them either using sylinux or grub.

Presumably you could just chainload the live CD - but I'm mystified why you would want to do this?
