If you want to boot KoOS directly with grub, you need to do this:
- get and install the syslinux package
- copy /usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk to /boot
- point your config "root"-entry to your FAT or NTFS-partition, where the image resides, and write the kernel-entry with (hd0,0)/boot/memdisk or where ever your linux partition is.
- add this lines to your grub.conf:
label KoOS root (hd0,0) # edit this to your correct partition, given example is hda1 kernel /boot/memdisk initrd /boot/kolibri.img
- reboot and enjoy
BTW, there is one limitation in this method: The kernel cannot save its boot settings :(
