You should be able to get my package to compile. For your hard drive
you can try:

  grubinst /boot/grub/stage1 /boot/grub/stage2

You should also make a file /boot/grub/menu.lst, which is similar to:

title=Linux 2.1.65
kernel=/boot/vmlinuz-2.1.65 root=/dev/hda4


Where (hd0,3) is your Linux parition in GRUB notation and /dev/hda4 is
the parition in Linux notation.  (All these commands can be typed
interactively, with tab completion, at boot time.)
