When I used grub(grub4dos) I format my usb key as bootable(hp usb format tool with boot options), point to some win98 dos files to boot from, then its set to copy anything to the drive, like grub and linux, etc.

Here is what I think I used to have for bt4

# This is a sample menu.lst file. You should make some changes to it.

# The old install method of booting via the stage-files has been removed.

# Please install GRLDR boot strap code to MBR with the bootlace.com

# utility under DOS/Win9x or Linux.
