Hi All,

My desktop runs Ubuntu Lucid. I want to add an item to the Grub menu to boot
from an ISO image. Here is my dpkg output for Grub:

$ dpkg -l |grep grub
ii  grub-common                           1.98-1ubuntu7
              GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (common files)
ii  grub-pc                               1.98-1ubuntu7
              GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS version)

Is it possible to use this version to boot an ISO?
I think I read once that Lucid comes with GRUB2 installed...

Should I install the grub2 package?

Also, can someone direct me to a resource to configure the Grub in Lucid to
boot an ISO image?
