Question about installing GRUB

I'm trying to install GRUB onto the MBR of my system.  But for now I only
want one OS installed, ie. Windows.  Can I do this?

My simple question should be yes however I have tried to install GRUB but I
get errors.  For instance, I've read (in your documentation) that stage1
loads stage2.  Correct me if I'm wrong but stage2 is dependent on a GRUB
supported filesystem.  Thus, in my case, I should install fat_1.5 onto the
sectors after the stage1.  In this way I *should* have the menu.lst and the
grub shell available to me at boot time?

What I've done is used a GRUB boot floppy to boot and run setup (hd0) from
the GRUB shell.  Since fd0 is root and the stage1 and stage2 files are in
place it checks them, embeds a stage1.5, and installs stage1, stage1.5 and
menu.lst.  And I reboot with an error message, error 17.

Thanks for a great program,
and thanks for any reply,
