Here is the grub stanza I used this time:
title Install Fedora17 from iso
 	root (hd0,2)
 	pause have rooted (hd0,2)
 	find   /isolinux17/vmlinuz
 	pause have finded
 	kernel /isolinux17/vmlinuz kernel /isolinux17/vmlinuz repo=hd:LABEL=/home1:/iso17/
 	pause kernel /isolinux17/vmlinuz kernel /isolinux17/vmlinuz repo=hd:LABEL=/home1:/iso17/
 	find   /isolinux17/initrd.img
 	pause have finded
 	initrd /isolinux17/initrd.img
 	pause have initrded

All the finds gave the expected results.  All the pauses happened.
The last thing I saw before the screen went blurry was
... unpacking initramfs

I took a picture of the final screen.
It is attached.
The original color JPEG was over 2MB, so I whittled.
