And indeed it doesn't work on *any* of my machines:(

But I found this other GPL-ed project (Smart Boot Manager or btmgr,
see <http://www.gnuchina.org/~suzhe>).  It too has support for booting
from CD, and low and behold it works on two out of three here:)

Helas, I've problems integrating it into GRUB myself and the author
is willing to do it iff he finds the time.

I thought that simply loading that code chain-booting would work,
but I get an error like "unknown exe format".  So what's the proper
way of chain-loading a program from /boot/grub and how to compile
and link such a pragram?

groetjes, carel
