With grub2 you can easily boot livecd image from hard drive.

General guide

This is general example. I will add settings for different livecd's later.

1. Copy the iso image to root folder for simplicity :

cp /home/user/downloads/systemrescuecd.iso /src.iso

2. Reboot and when grub2 loads press 'c' for console. Use following commands (tab autocompletion is your friend) :

loopback loop (hd0,2)/src.iso
linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz
initrd (loop)/boot/initrd.lz
