In all likelihood, the error occured because there is no `/boot'
directory in (hd0,3).  I'm guessing that your Linux /dev/hda4 is
mounted as `/boot'?  That means the `embed' command should be using
`embed /grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd0)', or else you should create a symlink
`ln -s . /boot/boot'.

In any event, the next release of GRUB will help diagnose and fix such

1) It will give you a more detailed explanation as to why the setup

2) The `setup' command in grub-install and the GRUB native mode
   provides a `--prefix' option to specify a directory other than
   `/boot/grub' on the root partition.

It's a problem that was really only noticed in the last release.

Good luck,
