I don't really have any hand-holding type advice on this issue, but I've
considered this before, and thought of using GRUB to do it. The way I
did it was I downloaded a Super Grub Disk, unpacked the ISO into a
folder on my desktop, then launched the ISO in a virtual machine to
examine how it was working as I read the files. It all seemed really
simple, as in my recollection it simply did some action to change
folders, then there was a menu.lst file in each folder linking to
binaries, files, etc... (but this was based on grub legacy, and some
time ago). I'd suggest following a similar path.

On this note, it's making me want to resurrect my project... I'll keep
you posted if I do!
