4. I installed the stage1 on the mbr of the compact flash

dd if=/home/debian_testing/boot/grub/stage1 of=/dev/hde bs=512 count=1

As long as I know you're overwriting your partition table contents of
your flash disk with some trash from stage1 from grub so you're loosing
all the data inside your flash disk.

After re-making a partition table inside your flash disk...

You can download ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/grub/grub-0.97-i386-pc.tar.gz
and follow these instructions::

Quick instructions
Mount your usb hd untar file in your usb hd  (the tar.gz file)
umount your usb hd open grub as root
device (hd3) /dev/ubb # my usb device in linux is called /dev/ubb
root (hd3,0)
setup (hd3)

You can too download an special version of grub that you have in there
that works with USB with the instructions above.


but if you want to stick with original grub... just download the one
I've told it.


P.S.: There's also another option that is copying manually stage15*
files and stage1 and stage2 files to /boot/grub/ on your usb pendrive
and then doing the instructions.
