This caused grub to continue to cycle upon boot (I guess trying to
read the non-existent drive) before the boot menu is shown.  I
couldn't see how to get grub to just ignore menu.lst on boot and give
me a grub prompt -- for example, by holding down a special key

Did I miss something obvious in the docs?

You could try holding 'c' which is what you do on Debian From Scratch to
get a grub prompt:




Or you can use a liveCD and fix your Grub's menu.lst.
