Hrm, apparently my memory is failing me. Nobody else remembers doing
the grub on a CD test way back when, but they all seem to indicate that
it is a bad idea with grub(1), and grub2 is just too untested.
This is a case where a seemingly minor change /can/ have great impact.
All the spins on the media were tested with isolinux as their boot
loader, not with grub. To mass produce something post-release to hand
out at shows using a boot technology that has not been tested during our
development phase (Alpha/Beta/RC) feels extremely irresponsible. From a
releng POV I could not sign off on that, and I apologize that I'm just
now realizing you're using grub, I had assumed it was syslinux like all
the other iso offerings Fedora makes.
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
