Sorry should be...

menuentry "Livecd  " {
	loopback loop (hd0,10)/pop/ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso
	linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper
iso-scan/filename=/pop/ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso noprompt noeject
quiet splash 
        initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.lz 

The email client didn't separate out the lines..
If messed up again...
menuentry as usual
loopback on first line
linux on second
initrd on third
} on last

ps: far easier than on the methods listed on the documentation.
     Don't install (I think you cannot anyway) on the partition the iso
file is on, in this example do not install at (hd0,10).

Good luck again - Goh Lip
