I'd go for a small sepparate partition few megs or smth. Ext2 so doze
will not see it. ;-)

You put there the content of /boot/grub/* and /etc/grub.conf nothing
more and then install grub from folppy. You can copy the content of the
grub folder from a running linux installation, you don't need to install
a full blown linux there. Of course in order to edit the menu you'll
have to use a bootable linux disk but apart from that it should work...
