GRUB question

Hi, all

I am using GRUB to start a Linux from netwoek. PC has only flopy drive, so I 
have created a GRUB boot floppy.
PC boots OK and I can manually enter some commands to get kernel to load.
So far, so good.

Now, I want to make process automatic.
According to manual, I can use embedded preset menu.
So, I am trying to rebuild GRUB with option '--enable-preset menu grub_config", 
where grub_config is my configuration file.

Firstly, I am getting warnings:
configure: WARNING: you should use --build, --host, --target
configure: WARNING: invalid host type grub_config

Compillation then fails;
checking build system type... Invalid configuration 'grub_config' :machine 
'grub_config' not recognised
configure: error /bin/sh/ ./config.sub grub_config failed.
If I do not specify --enable-preset-menu option, everything builds fine. 
I also tried to rename grub_config to menu.lst.

I am building under RedHat 9.0 using original GRUB source code.

Here is my grub_config file:
default 0
timeout 5

title RedHat 9.0
root (nd)
kernel /bzImage root=/dev/ram0 init=/sbin/init
initrd /initrd.gz
