    boot kali 2 from legacy grub

    Long time ago , i had backtrack iso.
    I copied its casper folder to a ext2 partition on my USB stick which has legacy grub installed on it.(BTW , its first partition is fat32 for keeping and deleting stuff)
    Then I labelled that ext2 partition as casper-rw

    I added following lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst (of that ext2 partition)

    title backtrack
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /casper/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x317
    initrd /casper/initrd.gz

    Now I can run backtrack from USB stick .

    QUESTION)Now I have kali-linux-2.0-i386.iso of 3.2 GB . I see that filesystem.squashfs is in live folder alongwith initrd.img and vmlinuz
    I tried the old trick with casper replaced by live in above. It did not work .
    Can you tell way to boot kali live with legacy grub ?
    Please note that I found ways to boot from iso with grub2 , which is not my case .
