Well, you can also mention that it's waste of memory space just to hold boot loader on 128 MB (or more) Flash Disk.
So Flash disk could be formated with FAT32 file system and be used for transfering files, also.
So, other way of doing the sam job would be:
mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/hdc
mount /dev/hdc /mnt/temp
cp /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage* /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/fat_stage1_5 /boot/grub/menu.lst .
