while its a special case, the Knoppix ISO (5.1+) supports this with a cheat code called  "bootfrom"

---------------------- begin grub.conf --------------------------------
title Knoppix 5.10
        kernel (hd0,4)/boot/knoppix.402/linux ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 nomce quiet bootfrom=/dev/hda10/boot/knoppix.402/*.iso noprompt dma screen=1680x1050 myconfig$
        initrd (hd0,4)/boot/knoppix.402/minirt_51.gz
---------------------------- end snip --------------------------------------------
