Uriah, to make a simple cd grub boot, just
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.
