    Grub2 + Backtrack

    In the last weeks I've been working on making a bootable usb stick with some linux distros on it, and it hasn't been a complete success. As of now, I can boot ubuntu 9.04, linux mint, tinycore and memtest, but I have been struggling with Backtrack 4. I have tried booting it using the following menu entries

    Code:
    menuentry "BackTrack iso" {
     loopback loop /boot/isos/bt4-pre-final.iso
     linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz find_iso/filename=/boot/isos/bt4-pre-final.iso BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw vga=0x317 --
     initrd (loop)/boot/initrd.gz
    }
    This is trying to boot from the iso.

    Code:
    menuentry "BackTrack 4 Pre Release" {
        linux /boot/isos/bt4/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw vga=0x317 --
        initrd /boot/isos/bt4/boot/initrd.gz
    }
    This is trying to boot not from the iso file, but from the folder where I extracted the files from the iso to.

    Both approaches leave me to the initramfs prompt as you can see in the screenshot, and although the screenshot is from a virtual machine, the same happens when I try to boot a pc with it. I've searched to no avail and nothing seems to work, could someone help me with this?
