Its difficult if not impossible to do this with normal grub as it does not have the emulation facilities like grub4dos

But the good nes is grub4dos can also be used from linux

Just read their tutuorial

How about booting from a USB drive, has anyone accomplished this?

I have followed steps 1,2,3 & 4c, only onto a flash drive. When I boot IsoEmu from grub4dos (on the flash drive) I get
Code:
Mount file system failed.

Your system may have no any FAT partition.
The drive is formated in FAT32, but IsoEmu detects the NTFS partitions that are on the real first hard drive.
