But it works with grub-install --root-directory, at least in F6 (fully
updated F6 and rescue mode from the original install CD - tested
yesterday). The chroot has problems related to mtab, which can be faked,
but --root-directory was simpler and it works.

And for the original poster: you can make a boot floppy for your system.
I don't remember if Anaconda still has an option for it, though.
