    Exclamation Fedora ISO on Multiboot DVD

    Hey guys,
    I'm new posting here so sorry if I've got the wrong forum to be posting this question, but could anyone give me some advice as to how to boot the Fedora 16 Live CD iso from Grub4DOS? I'm trying to compile a Multiboot DVD (which currently boots Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Slax). So far, I've managed to get Grub4DOS to boot the kernel and load the initial RAM drive using these commands:
    Code:
    find --set-root /isos/Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso
    map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /isos/Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff)
    map --hook
    root (0xff)
    kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz0 root=live:/isos-Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso rootfstype=auto ro liveimg rhgb rd.luks=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0
    initrd /isolinux/initrd0.img
    boot
    This boots until I get a screen with the following text:
    Code:
    /isos/Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso: No such file or directory
    
    
    dracut Warning: No root device "liveiso:/isos/Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso" found
    
    Dropping to debug shell.
    
    sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
    dracut:/#
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    NFSGamer

    Re: Fedora ISO on Multiboot DVD

    Never mind, I managed to figure a solution. For those who are interested though, I'll share my method here.
    I extracted the LiveOS directory from the ISO, put the vmlinuz0 and initrd0.img files in there, renamed the directory to Fedora and put it in the root of my DVD. I then used the following Grub4DOS entry:

    Code:
    title Fedora 16 i686
    kernel /Fedora/vmlinuz0 root=live:CDLABEL=CDROM livedir=/Fedora rootfstype=auto ro liveimg rhgb rd.luks=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0
    initrd /Fedora/initrd0.img
    boot
    If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll be happy to run through the entire method of making the multiboot DVD
