    Things are more clear now. As I understand, I don't need to have stage
1_5 in a floppy, because I can put stage 2 in a defined sector, but  I
should use stage 1_5 in a hard disk so stage 2 can be found in a filesystem.
Is that right?
    However, I still have two questions:

-> If I want to install GRUB in a harddisk, how should I provide the correct
stage 1_5 to setup? Do I need to create a floppy that has the same
filesystem of my harddisk and use the correct stage 1_5 in the floppy?

-> Is it possible to install GRUB without putting files in any of my
installed systems, i.e., could I create a, say, 250K partition in the
beggining of the harddisk and install all GRUB files to access all kinds of
filesystem there (and also the files to configure GRUB and GRUB menu)? How
can I do that?
