I found some place on the web with instructions on how to make a grub boot floppy. Can't remember where though.
Anywho, I used those notes and some notes on making a bootable cdrom from a Windows boot floppy I just used the grub floppy instead and it worked!!
Here are my notes.....
1. Creat the Grub boot floppy
This gives you the boot menu just like it was installed on the hard drive.
mke2fs –m 0 /dev/fd0
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mkdir -p /mnt/floppy/boot/grub
cp -pa /boot/grub/* /mnt/floppy/boot/grub
Create a text file called /home/stuff
and add these lines to that file
#the following is all one line
install /boot/grub/stage1 d (fd0) (fd0)/boot/grub/stage2 0x8000 p (fd0)/boot/grub/menu.lst
Install grub to the floppy disk with this command:
grep -v ^# /home/stuff | grub --batch
2. Create Grub Boot CD from that floppy
Make a directory and cd into that directory.
Copy the entire boot disk to a file
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=boot.img bs=10k count=144
Make the iso image with boot.img ( and boot.cat if you have one )
mkisofs -r -b boot.img -c boot.cat -o bootcd.iso .
Make the bootable cd
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 -data bootcd.iso
