Hi,

I'm trying to boot Alpine iso directly from GRUB2 menu, without success.

I've no idea what should be set under alpine_dev variable. I'm not sure
what designation the iso will get. If it's left empty or unset, the
system is unable to mount rootfs/iso. I tried default 'cdrom' and
various 'sd[ab][09], but nothing worked. Any ideas?

menuentry 'Alpine Linux' {
        set isofile="alpine-mini-2.5.4-x86_64.iso"
        loopback loop (hd0,1)/$isofile
        set root='(loop)'

        linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.6.11-grsec iso-scan/filename=/$isofile
alpine_dev=??? modules=loop,squashfs,sd-mod,usb-storage,floppy,sr-mod
        initrd /boot/grsec.gz
}

Little late; but better late than never. For Grub 0.97:
title   AlpineLinux 3.0.4
root    (hd0,6)
kernel  /boot/grsec alpine_dev=sdb7:ext2 modules=loop,squashfs,sd-mod,usb-storage,ext2 modloop=/boot/grsec.modloop.squashfs
initrd  /boot/grsec.gz
