Hi Andrei, thanks for the answer.

I was advised on debian-live, "if ISO contains httpfs, you can boot by pointing 
the live initramfs to the iso location on your web server"; essentially the 
same thing you stated.

That's done by params in the "linux" line then? Something like this?
  loopback loop0 ($root)$path$isofile
  linux (loop0)/casper/vmlinuz.efi boot=casper fromiso=$isofile httpfs=$loop0
  initrd (loop0)/casper/initrd.lz  }

This is not working though, so:
* Should "fromiso=" be full path "($root)$path$isofile"?
* For "httpfs=", can loop0 be used or should I revert to "($root)$path$isofile"?
* Any other suggestions in above syntax appreciated.

Thanks and Regards.
