Uriah, to make a simple cd grub boot, just
grub-mkrescue --output=anything.iso
where anything.siso can be any thing you name.

However if you want to include a grub.cfg file then
grub-mkrescue --output=grubo.iso /media/LABEL/boot/grub/grub.cfg

where /media/LABEL is the partition where you want the right grub.cfg you  
want copied over.
But remember if you boot up from that cd, do a  "configfile /grub.cfg" so  
that the grub menu appears at the grub prompt.

Just got back from a short new year (my new year, not yours) holidays, but  
if you need more info, please let us know.

I used to have an open mind,
but my brains kept falling out.
