Thanks for the  reply, adrian. What I want to do is to cause GRUB to load the
stored image of TrueCrypt's MBR and load it into the correct place in
memory. Since that would also contain a partition table, there would be no
hiding or unhiding necessary.

According to this article:
http://www.dewassoc.com/kbase/hard_drives/master_boot_record.htm both the
MBR, then the Volume boot record that any  boot manager directs the
processor to will load into the same memory location. To me that means tell
GRUB 'boot'. So even though it would be one step backwards, i.e.,
substituting another MBR for the MBR that got to GRUB, it should work. I'll
probably try it sometime in the next week.

This article talks about doing something just a little bit the same, making
a logical partition just for GRUB.
