 Oh, I'm sorry if I led you to beleive that I was recomending having

 Perhaps it's not clear from the docs, but what you are saying with that
 install line is that you want to use the file /boot/grub/stage1 which
 lives on the (grub) root partition.  That is, you are asking grub to
 read (hd0,0)/boot/grub/stage1, not (hd0,6)/boot/grub/stage1 (or
 whatever your linux root partition is)

 The proper line reads:

 install  /grub/stage1 d (hd0) /grub/stage2 p

 setup is just a wrapper arround embed and install.  Because that line
 is not something you will come up with without going back to the
 documentation is that I asked to have another parameter to specify
 this.  In other words, KISS.

 Sorry about the confusion,
