Something like this should get you close to what you want:

Code: [Select]
timeout 30
default 0

title microcore
find --set-root /boot/grub/menu.lst
kernel /boot/vmlinuz loglevel=3 cde lang=it kmaps=qwerty/it
initrd /boot/core.gz

But don't use cde if you are putting it on writable media.

I still haven't figured out a convenient way to print the help screens on f2, f3 and f4

PPR, data persistence through filetool.sh          |  32 bit core 8.0 alpha 1
USB Flash drive, one partition, ext2, grub4dos  | Otherwise similar

I have created a new iso file that has the boot GRUB4DOS

and within this iso file I put the iso file of tiny (isolinux)

I put these in the menu.lst file:
title microcore
map /tiny.iso (0xff)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)


Tiny is loaded perfectly, but do not load cde extensions, which are called by isolinux.cfg of tiny.iso

the reason is that isolinux sees as the root of the GRUB4DOS, and not that of isolinux,
1) How can I change the menu.lst to specify that the root becomes one of isolinux?
2) How can I modify the menu.lst or isolinux.cfg so that the root remains one of GRUB4DOS, managing to load cde in tiny.iso (isolinux)?

thanks

isolinux does not work according to your claims, it just passes boot codes to the kernel cmdline.
Valid boot codes which are not kernel parameters get processed by startup scripts in rootfs parsing kernel cmdline.
