Thanks, Johan, the procedure you describe is what I have been doing to
create workable boot floppies. However, my questions remain
unanswered. My principle concern at this point is this:

When I upgraded from debian woody to sarge, grub (both new and old
versions) began to map my drives incorrectly. My "work-around" has
been to change the root command to compensate for the mapping error:  

     sda drive 0       root (hd0,0)
     sdb drive 1       root (hd2,0)
     sdc drive 2       root (hd1,0)

Will this work-around cause me any problems? 

I get the impression that grub is forced to guess at the drive
sequence, and so getting it wrong is only to be expected. 

Instead of using the root command, would I do better changing the map,
either the map file in /boot or placing a map command in the grub
menu? I tried doing both, but without any effect.
