I don't think it matters where you run Grub from, as long as you give it the correct 'root' and 'setup' values. Of course, you also have to have installed the correct 'stage' and 'menu' files where Grub expects to find them. If you make a mistake, you can still boot, and then enter Grub's editor. The normal Grub 'root' value is 'root(hd0,0)' and 'setup(hd0)
