Post grub2 and ntpasswd from iso
So I'm using grub2 to boot from an iso on a usb disk.

I get System Rescue CD to work great, but ntpasswd does not. It seems that grub 1 supports multiple initrd images concatenated together, but grub2 doesn't.

This is what I've tried:

Code:
menuentry "System Rescue CD NTPASSWD" {
   loopback loop $isofullpathname
   
   linux (loop)/ntpasswd/vmlinuz rw
   initrd (loop)/ntpasswd/initrd.cgz
   initrd (loop)/ntpasswd/scsi.cgz
}


This does boot and run ntpasswd, but the scsi device drivers are missing. http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Initramf ... _initramfs seems to imply that this is possible, but I can't find a grub2 syntax for it.

Grub 1 per Gentoo-wiki
Code:
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.27-r8 with initramfs (hd0,0)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.27-gentoo-r8
initrd /boot/first-initramfs.cpio.gz
initrd /boot/second-initramfs.cpio.gz
initrd /boot/third-initramfs.cpio.gz



Any ideas?

I filed a feature request to have grub2 support this like grub-legacy does. It has been added to the trunk code for a later release.

Thanks for info.
I wonder about the removed option in GRUB2.
