Installing GRUB to a floppy disk


When installing GRUB to a floppy disk, I get the following error:

Emachines:~# grub-install /dev/fd0
/dev/hdb1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.


Can anyone explain what this means ? All comments and suggestions are welcome.

Installing GRUB to a floppy disk

Ok, I went to the Debian package site and downloaded "grub-disk_0.95+cvs20040624-17_all.deb"

That should do it for me I think, if not I'll post back........
