grub-install problem (grub2)

Some help dearly needed! I'm having problems setting up a dual-boot configuration (XP & FC4) on my laptop (Thinkpad R52). XP preinstalled, NTLDR in MBR (which I believe one should leave it there nowadays...). /dev/sda1 (NTFS), /dev/sda2 (FAT), /dev/sda3 (ext3; /boot), /dev/sda4 (ext3; /). I have compiled the latest (today) grub2 source from the cvs trunk. I'm using the Knoppix live CD to setup the dual-boot configuration; /dev/sda3 is mounted under /ramdisk/home/knoppix/boot. However when I run

./grub-install ---root-directory=/ramdisk/home/knoppix /dev/sda

or (with partition number)

./grub-install ---root-directory=/ramdisk/home/knoppix /dev/sda3

the response is:

cannot find a GRUB device for /ramdisk/home/knoppix/boot/grub.
./grub-install: line 213: unexpected EOF while looking for matching ``'
./grub-install: line 237: syntax error: unexpected end of file

Anyone an idea what's going wrong? Thanks.
