trouble installing grub

I am trying to install grub into the mbr of my hard drive from a floppy
without installing the menu. Here are the step I am taking to do so. In
freebsd I created a grub boot floppy. Then I created another floppy
(formated ufs) with the stage1 and stage2 files on it. I boot the machine
with the grub boot floppy and then i insert the floppy with the stage1 and 2
files on it. 
I then type the command:
find /boot/grub/stage1
find /boot/grub/stage2

then i type:
root (fd0)
install=/boot/grub/stage1 d (hd0) /boot/grub/stage2 0x8000 p
(works fine)

I pull the floppy and reboot, but get the error : 

GRUB read error

Can someone point out what I am doing wrong? I have been looking through the
docs and it seems like i am doing everything correctly.
