grub help needed

I have been trying to automate running qemu
and have succeeded except for one point.
Some tests are larger than the space left on
my virtual floppy image.

I have created a 5 MB virtual HD like this:

dd if=/dev/null of=/home/joel/qemu/qemu/pc386_hd\
   bs=1024 count=5120

I have this as my ~/.mtoolsrc:

drive i: file="/home/joel/qemu/qemu/pc386_fda"
drive j: file="/home/joel/qemu/qemu/pc386_hd"

and formatted the HD image using:

mformat -n 63 -h 16 -t 40 j:

What do I need to do to get grub on this FAT
HD image?

I know I used to know how to do this. :(
