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.
