Those instructions seem to omit putting the stage1 portion of grub into
the boot sector. I could be wrong, but I don't think the resulting
floppy will boot into grub properly.
I did have a good write-up somewhere which explained it (I think it was
just dd'd onto the front of the floppy device) but I can't find it now.
I expect I just googled for 'grub boot floppy howto'.
