grub and iso installs

I am using mepis64-amd beta 1 om my secondary hard drive (hdb1)
seems to work just fine

I also have a open susie10.2 iso file on my secondary hard drive (hdb1)

I mount the susie directory as an iso and copy the files to a directory
called /susie

then I add this to menu.1st

title SUSIE install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /susie/boot/x86_64/loader/linux
kernel /susie/boot/x86_64/loader/initrd

then I get a grub boot error

"invalid or unsupported format"
I think I used this method for fedora and it worked

yes, I could use k3b and make a bootable dvd but
where is the fun in that

What are you trying to do?

Why not just install Suse to its own partition?

I don't know if what you are trying to do is possible or not, but if it is, there will be some documentation somewhere.
