grub and swapping out drive

I want to install grub to (hd1) so that it is ready to be used as (hd0).

I have Debian 3.1r0a up.  On /dev/hda2 (hd0,1) is my root.  On /dev/sda2
(hd1,1) is a cloned root.  I want to remove the IDE disk at /dev/hda and
boot from /dev/sda2 which will then be (hd0,1).  I have no floppy drive.

By cloned I mean (modulo typos):  
	fdisk /dev/sda;  
	mke2fs -j /dev/sda2; 
	mount /dev/sda2 /mnt;  
	cd /; 
	cp -ax . /mnt;  
	grub-install \(hd1\);

grub gives me "Hard Disk Error".

What is the grub invocation I need?
