Many thanks.

It would be nice, if we could boot "direct" from the iso with grub2. I've 
tried:

menuentry "Owl i686" {
  loopback loop /boot/iso/Owl-3.0-release-i686.iso
  linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz findiso=/boot/iso/Owl-3.0-release-i686.iso single rootfstype=iso9660 root=/dev/cdrom rootdelay=30 --
}

but it gives me "cannot read linux header". Maybe Owl cannot use a cdrom 
as root devices.

I can boot something like Tinycore with:

menuentry "Tinycore 3.5" {
 loopback loop /boot/iso/tinycore_3.5.iso
 linux (loop)/boot/bzImage --
 initrd (loop)/boot/tinycore.gz
}

Thanks
Matthias
