Any chance on fixing this on the iso. We are useing it as a starting
point for our installation. Bringing our own grub is a possability
but being as it's got files and all it seems better to fix the iso image.

Since grub working is rather important for building a system off the iso,
isn't it worthy of an update? I have no idea with other problems the 
optimizer has caused. Perahps involved in my 2nd problems of not even
being able to boot with the work around of pointing stage to stage2.
