Problems with GRUB & nftl_format

I have a Virgin Webplayer with a doc2000. I had completely hosed the doc
after trying to write somebody's image to the doc. So, I did an erase
all and used nftl_format to set up the doc again. I used fdisk to
partition it and set up an ext2 file system. Then, I used doc_loadbios
tool to install GRUB. GRUB Installed successfully, and it works, but at
the same time, it seems to have hosed up the doc again. The only thing
that I can do is to reformat the doc, which of course overwrites GRUB,
leaving back to square one. I am using a 2.4.19 kernel, with the latest
cvs grab of mtd-linux. Can anyone tell me what is happening and how I
can work around it?
