AFAIK, you can easily boot a floppy image (which you might
produce with mtools). You need memdisk (from the SYSLINUX
project) and an image of a floppy and the following entry
in your menu.lst:

kernel /boot/grub/memdisk
initrd /image.dsk

(you can find memdisk here: 
if you do not prefer to download the current version from
Peter Anvin site: http://syslinux.zytor.com/memdisk.php

image.dsk should be a bootable disk image.
