Unhappy I have a big trouble with GRUB

I'm reading ˇ¶Getting to know GRUBˇ·from IBM developerwork.First,I need to make a bootdisk follow the article.OK,I type these command under console as root:

#mke2fs /dev/fd0

#mount /mnt/floppy

#mkdir /mnt/floppy/boot

#mkdir /mnt/floppy/boot

#cp /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage1 /mnt/floppy/boot/grub

#cp /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage2 /mnt/floppy/boot/grub

then I'm type:


grub>root (fd0)

Now,GRUB tell me it's a FAT disk. Oh,I'm remember I have used "mke2fs /dev/fd0 "command,so that I should have a ext2 filesystem disk.But why GRUB report it's FAT??


grub>setup (fd0)

GRUB report :can't found stage1

Now,would someone tell why????

# grub
install (fd0)/boot/grub/stage1 (fd0) (fd0)/boot/grub/stage2 0x8000 (fd0)/boot/grub/menu.lst

But don't forget to create a menu.lst file first ...
