First, create an image file
dd if=/dev/zero of=/floppy_image bs=1k count=1440

Then before you install grub you need:
device (fd0) /path/to/floppy_image

 From grub.info: "This command can be used only in the grub shell".

You will then have to use setup or install to install grub, depending on 
what kind of disk you are creating.
