At last! Hope that it will give feedback for new exciting features for Super Grub Disk.
The GRUB manual indicates that it is flexible about where to install the
Stage_1.5 and Stage_2 files, but does not give any specific examples for
non-Linux filesystems.  I would prefer to install GRUB using the Knoppix
Live CD?

You have to create:

You have to find in your knoppix cd the grub files: stage1, stage2 stage1_5* which can be found on /lib/grub or /usr/lib/grub
to c:\boot\grub

Then you have to reinstall grub on the MBR. I recommend you to use
Super Grub Disk's ( http://adrian15.raulete.net/grub/ ) option:
Fix Boot of Linux (GRUB) inside Linux menu.

Although you can follow some manuals that tells you how to fix grub from a knoppix cd. (root (hd0,0) setup (hd0) )

How can I install the GRUB program to "hda1"
As long as it is a FAT32 you cannot install grub to hda1 (boot sector of first partition) but to the MBR. If you force grub to install it on hda1... you will probably loose all the files on FAT32 partition.

using Knoppix given that it will be formatted FAT32.  Thanks in advance for
