In that case you are 99% of the way there!
It's only a matter of putting the info into /etc/grub.conf
which I think is normally a symbolic link to /boot/grub/grub.conf
and /boot/grub/menu.lst is also a like to the same file.

I don't think that is quite accurate.
It depends if you have a separate /boot partition or not.
If you do have a boot partition, say /dev/hda2
then the entry in grub.conf should say something like
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=/dev/hda3
On the other hand, if you don't have a separate /boot partition
then you have to include the /boot eg
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=/dev/hda3
Then I'd say
grub-install --recheck /dev/hda
to install it on your first disk's MBR.
