I'm not sure exactly what your problem is. If you can get the thing you
were running that does funny business to put back a normal partition table,
and then install grub in the MBR, you should be fine.

Last I knew it supports only FAT16, not FAT32.

Sure. From the grub command line (or menu.lst settings), you can access

This was necessary with earlier versions of GRUB, but I believe that it no
longer matters. To put /boot/grub/stage2 past cylinder 1024, you might
need to use the new stage1_lba as your stage1. But I believe that GRUB's
stage2 (which reads everything else but stage1 and stage2) can now access
large disks without restriction.
