It's best not to link stage1 to stage2 directly. If you do, the
location of stage2 is stored inside stage1, this means whenever you
change the location, perhaps by running defrag, you have to reinstall
grub again.

Can you check how many sectors are overwriting by vista ? If there is
still room in the first track, you can embed 1.5 in some place after
the scratch area.
