creating virtual disk and installing grub and use with qemu


hi..
this is my first thread... completed building linux from scratch with help of lfs7.2 book on my host ubuntu 12.4 .now i want to load the lfs source in qemu for that i followed this link https://github.com/xvisor/xvisor/blo...disk-howto.txt

1. Create disk image
2. Partitioning the disk
2.2 Creating primary partition
3 Setting up loopback device
3.2 Formatting with ext2
3.3 Mounting the virtual drive
4. Installing grub
==================
For this step please ensure that you have grub installed on your box

in this fourth step i dont know how to install in my virtual drive

i tried like sudo grub-install /dev/loop0
error as /dev/loop0 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.
how to solve this ........
