  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.afaik, isolinux can do the same job that grub is currently doing, because its not attempting to chainload the isos. I'm happy to test it tomorrow though.
