 Exactly.  Even "just a host" typically contains network access, it's
often useful to be able to refer back to it for comparison/

 I think maybe Meher has answered your problem, i.e. /boot (hda1) isn't
mounted (or else you haven't copied the grub files to it).  Not
attempting to answer the detail on stage files, I don't know.  I can
tell you that there doesn't seem to be any need to recompile the kernel
- within grub's setup you pass parameters such as root= to each kernel
you have there, you can easily have four systems on different partitions
and (leaving aside /lib/modules) one kernel could boot into all of them
(not recommended, but possible).
