Creating a bootable cdrom that includes Grub.

Someone previously questioned:  "Please, could somebody tell me, wether
it is possible
to boot off a cdrom with GRUB?"

While I have not had any problems getting grub to load from cdrom and
I've had no
problems booting an operating system off my hard drive, I have
encountered problems
when trying to actually boot Linux off the cdrom using hard drive
emulation.  I always
end up with a kernel panic.  I guess my questions is:  Which device
should I be calling
to boot the cdrom?  (hd0,0) along with /dev/hda1 or should I be calling
the loop device
/dev/loop0p0 or loop1p1 instead?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Harry - Thanks
