A different understanding of the same wording leads to a yet another question:

  Can I install grub on a disk image ?

Actually, a friend of mine is trying to achieve it, and found no simple way...
The use case is being able to continue generating flash card images from 
script. Something along the lines of debootstrap + tweaks to folders (incl. 
replacing config files etc) + wraping the result in a disk image and 
installing a bootloader (grub 1 before, and now trying with grub 2).

I didn't even try to search, so maybe he just didn't find the right bit of 
information - which I think means it should be made more visible, as in a FAQ.
