Booting Fedora 14

I found one topic that had an earlier vesion of Fedora, and tried that one. It did not work.

I get the following error;

Error 62: The number of heads must be specified. the '--heads=0' option tells map to choose a value(but maybe unsuitable) for you

Press any key to continue.

This is what I have in the menu.lst for Fedora.

title Fedora 14 i686 Live

root (hd0,0)

find --set-root /Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso

map /Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff) || map --mem /Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff) || --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff)

map --hook

rootnoverify (0xff)

chainloader (0xff)

Thanks,

I can now get it into the boot loader. When it starts to boot into Fedora, I now get;

No root device found

Boot has failed, sleeping forever

Here is what I have tried;

title Fedora 14 i686 Live

find --set-root /ISO/Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso

map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 /ISO/Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff) || map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 --mem /ISO/Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso (0xff)

map --hook

chainloader (0xff)

title Fedora 14 LiveCD

root (hd0,0)

kernel /ISO/vmlinuz0 root=live:LABEL=:"BOOTDISK" rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM

initrd /ISO/initrd0.img

title Fedora Boot

root

kernel /ISO/vmlinuz0 fromiso=/ISO/Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso

initrd /ISO/initrd0.img

All of them give the same error.
