I have written a Bourne shell script named `mkbimage' (MaKe a Bootable
IMAGE) that one can find here:


It allows to create "virtual images" including 1.2, 1.44, 2.88 or HD
emulation for an El Torito compatible CDROM.

At the moment, one needs to patch GRUB. Patches against 0.90 version can
be found here:


I haven't updated the patches since Okuji Yoshinori has asked for a
rewrite of stage1 which will include the code needed for El Torito to
work properly. This should be a question of a few days now.
