I realized that *might* be what he was asking for, but his question was

And golly gee....    google is your friend!!

A google of "grub on a cd"  found this site:


This is a write-up outlining methods to create a generic bootable Grub floppy 
and CD. The floppy side has been well documented and included here for the 
sake of completeness. The main aim is to explain how to create a bootable Grub 

A simplistic explanation of how one can use Grub is explained relative to a 
DOS system.

A generic Grub floppy or CD is non distro-specific and its difference to those 
generated by other methods in a Linux is described. It can be used to boot any 
operating system based on a PC.
