grub kernel arguments for freedos
i am attempting to make a multibooting usb flash drive, which will contain a couple of live linux distros, a windows PE and freedos. however i am new with grub and booting, from what i understand you boot an OS with grub by using the contents of isolinux.cfg if available. i have obtained the latest (today) fdbootcd.iso from here http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-.../old/beta9sr2/
which i belive is verison beta9sr2, and extracted it to a 42 megabyte fat32 partition in my usb fladh drive. the relevent contents of isolinux.cfg are as follows
append initrd=data/FDBOOT.IMG floppy=0
and from this i have made the following entry in menu.lst for grub
kernel /isolinux/data/memdisk floppy=0
freedos begins to boot and i get the following messeges
ramdisk at 0x17e86000, length 0x0005a000
comand line: floppy=0
disk is floppy 0, 360K, C/H/S =40/2/9
total size needed = 1901 bytes, alocating 2K
old dos memory at 0x9f400 (map sais 0x9f400), loadin at 0x9ec00
1588: 0xffff 15E801: 0x3x00 0x16e8
int 13 08: success,count = 0, PT - 0000:0000
old:init13 = f0007c52 init15 = f0007c57
new init13 = 9ec00008 init15 = 9ec00290
