I never tried using GRUB on a CD-ROM, but here is the boot sector writing
procedure. It was adapted from
The boot.img file must be a 1.44M floppy image to boot. I heard a size
2.88M is OK as well. The boot.img file should be located in the disk/
directory among other files to be written.
The GRUB mail list archive has more postings on CD-ROM boot support.
CD-RW disks and multi-session CD-ROM/CD-RW disks may not be handled by
BIOS on all computers.
modprobe ide-scsi # SCSI over ATAPI support
cdrecord -scanbus # should display CD burner info, note its
# device number
mkisofs -R -J -c boot.cat -b boot.img -o cdimage.raw disk/
cdrecord -v dev=0,0 speed=4 blank=all # you might need this
# to erase CD-RW disk
cdrecord -v dev=0,0 speed=4 -multi cdimage.raw
# take the disk from the oven and put it into CD-ROM drive
ls -al /mnt/cdrom
Add another session (see the HOWTO for more accurate command):
mkisofs -R -J -M /dev/scd0 -C $TRACK -o cdimage2.raw disk2/
cdrecord -v dev=0,0 speed=4 -multi cdimage2.raw
