Ray, see this in making a bootable grub (empty, ie., no menu.lst) cdrom

Also, would help if you first try to google for it yourself. You might 
learn more and faster too.

Also note grub legacy will be phased out in karmic.

And yes, besides having a grub cdrom, it is helpful to have a newer 
grub2 cdrom and a gparted cdrom as well. When installing or 
reinstalling, making an apt-cdrom of all previous 
downloads/installations is useful too. Try googling for yourself.
