Booting from CD with Grub

Simple question... How can I boot off the CD-Rom from GRUB (something like the "Boot from floppy" option). Is it possible?

This is something I don't think any bootloader can do. The easiest thing is simply to set the BIOS to boot from CD first, then hard disk.

Booting from CD's is funamentally diffrent from booting from disks.
