As far as i know, openSUSE 11.1 does not use grub2.From what i have read, I think only ubuntu jaunty (as of now) gives users the ability to upgrade to grub2 through package manager... all rescue CD's as of now uses grub legacy not grub2 thats why i had to download n build it
Anyway the problem has been resolved. It was a misunderstanding from my part.... ie i thought
copied the grub files to boot folder inside /dev/sdb where as it installed the grub files to the /boot of the system on which the command is executed.
The correct way to install grub to a non-native device is
by using the root-directory option as shown below:
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/usbdevice /dev/sdb
where /mnt/usbdevice is the mount point of /dev/sdb1
Thanks for your help my friends...
