    I think I use grub1 as well.
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|grep -i grub
    grub-0.97-13.2
    [root@localhost ~]#
    but I don't have --device-map

    Does this install stage1?
    Code:
    grub --device-map=/dev/null --batch <<EOT
    device (hd0) /dev/loop0
    root (hd0,0)
    EOT

    You forgot a few commands, as you loop mount the device then copy stage1/2 and THEN you use that grub command. Read better next time.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can press 'esc' to switch to and from text mode when booting in graphics mode.

    I understood those, so I just pasted the part that I hadn't seen before.

    What I don't understand is what happens when those 4 lines are executed.

    Comparing the first 446 bytes of stage1 with first 446 bytes of MBR gives that they are not the same.

    I would have expected that.
