Yes, it was as simple as:

| $ mkdir /tmp/iso
| $ grub-mkrescue -o grub.iso /boot/grub
| $ growisofs.... etc.

I booted from the DVD but only got a ‘grub > ’ and it took me a good bit
of googling to figure out that I needed issue the following command to
make the grub menu appear:

| grub > configfile /boot.cfg

Of course, my setup is very basic, with a flat multi-boot menu, but all
the same, I feel that both the procedure to create the boot disk and how
to use it when recovering really need to be documented in the new
manual: In the event of a mishap, I can just slip in my custom grub
rescue disk instead of having to hunt for an install or live CD/DVD and
waste time fumbling for the correct grub command syntax to get the
machine to boot.. Priceless!
