Grub2 for this project might be a good destination.  I just don't think
we can throw a F14 iso set out to thousands and thousands of users and
more downloaders without first having tested it as part of our release
cycle.  For F15, sure, give it a go and see what pans out.

I'm not even sure isolinux can chain load like this is trying to do.
I'm getting more and more uncomfortable with this offering all the time.
