I have received a couple of bug reports for ISO Master saying that the ISOs
it writes aren't bootable. After looking at it for a while I've decided the
thing that's most likely at fault has something to do with GRUB. The CDs are
FC-6-i386-livecd-1.iso and NimbleX-2007.iso

Both start to boot but hang. Fedora prints this:

Loading stage2 ....

And NimbleX prints this:

Loading stage1.5 .

GRUB loading, please wait...

Both hang there unresponsive, cursor doesn't blink, the keyboard doesn't seem
to work at all.

I compared the original ISOs with the edited ones. They are exactly the same
except for the location of the boot file in the boot info table (that's in
the stage2_eltorito file) which needs to be changed so that the BIOS will
find it.

Please help me find the problem. I have no idea what version GRUB is on
either of those but both distros are available online you can take a look:

If you care to see the problem for yourself, please download this version of
iso master: http://littlesvr.ca/isomaster/releases/isomaster-0.8-rc1.tar.bz2

But I'll post any file here if it may help figure out what's wrong.

Thanks in advance, I appreciate your time.
