 +==== Boot ISO with GRUB2 ====
 +Add to ''/​etc/​grub.d/​40_custom'':​ <​file>​
 +menuentry "​Slackware 14 install (DVD)" {
 + ​insmod loopback

 +<​note>​(hd0,​2) means "//the second partition on the first drive//"​ (i.e. ''/​dev/​sda2''​). You can find the right value in the "''​set root''"​ command of the menu entry used to boot your system, or else consult with [[http://​www.gnu.org/​software/​grub/​manual/​grub.html|GRUB manual]]. </​note>​
 +Then update grub with: <​file>​
 + ​grub-mkconfig -o /​boot/​grub/​grub.cfg
 +</​file>​
 +<​note>​On Slackware before running grub-mkconfig you have to run ln -s /dev/sda2 /dev/root
 +where for sda2 you have to enter your root device.
