    I have used these steps a bunch of times and it works great. Just make sure you use the correct device.

    I`m installing full system, on ext3.
    After executing grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt/cfcard /dev/sdb
    I see:
    /dev/sdb does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

    Are you installing from another USB, SD card, or cdrom? If so, make sure you dont have the CF card in while you boot up. After boot up, plug in CF card and do a dmesg to see what the device name is...like sdc.... then do install and reference that device.
