There is nothing specific to Hurd-L4 in this question, you just need
to create images on which you install grub and a filesystem that grub
can access.

Personally, I use a somewhat more tricky setup, where I have a grub
boot floppy (pretty vanilla, created from the Debian package, but with
a network driver enabled), and then I have a single configuration file
which loads the real configuration file via tftp.  All files are also
downloaded via tftp.  All of this is on one machine, so I use a tunnel
device.  I don't use any hard drive image (although I have one).

Making floppy images is trivial, to create disk images you can use
scripts that are usually associated with bochs, I think.  But really,
there are a zillion ways, and your best bet is to check out the
options documented in the emulator community and just pick something
that suits your style (personally, I find hard disk images annoying to
use in Linux).
