Yes, install grub again, this time give your boot partition as root:
  root (hd0,4)
  setup (hd0)
And leave the symlink in your boot directory.

Grub's "root", that you set before invoking the command setup, is
where the grub files resides, in your case the boot partition.  Grub
searches for the menu in /boot/grub/menu.lst, so the boot partition
should itself contain a sub-directory "boot"; a symlink is enough.
