well, my aim is just to learn and play with grub : having fun

but if your aim is to modify a lot grub.cfg inside rescue.iso then the
grub people did foresee long ago (already in grub legacy): just use
configfile to load any external customised cfg
(I expect this because I do not see what else you can modify )

In Grub2 v1.99 now also iso floppy creation is broken completely.
In case it reappears, they should make directly a writeable VFAT floppy. As this is most flexible and direct in practice. A floppy is not a CD, and is anyway used when there is a problem with HD accessability (net-boot, formats, firewire ...). Thus no need to spread the config more and create more complicated dependencies.
