Just in case you don't get a better answer, I would have to say I think it 
_is_ possible ... but I can't tell you exactly how to do it :-(

I have a USB drive enclosure which currently holds the drive from my old 
laptop (which was booting with grub).  

If I accidentally try to boot with the drive connected to my new laptop, it 
starts grub on the USB drive.  It then fails because grub was configured to 
boot off /dev/hda and the partition is on /dev/sdb (or possibly /dev/sdc).  I 
think if I just modified the grub configuration I could get it to boot.  If 
you don't get a better answer today, I'll see if I can give it a try tonight.
