Not all BIOS support the HD image. So try to build a 2.88 boot floppy
image, and let the kernel access the CD.

BTW, I think you need the "old" version of mkbimage, the new has been
tested I think by Robert against 0.93 (I have only tested against 0.92
and the new mkbimage in GRUB CVS is only for the future maintenance of
the script; keep in sync 0.92+patches+"old" mkbimage).
