Umm, why not install GRUB properly in hdb4? Goes like this:

mkfs.ext2 /dev/hdb4
mkdir /tmp/x
mount /dev/hdb4 /tmp/x
grub-install --root-directory=/tmp/x /dev/hdb4

et voilà, the chainloader should work. grub-install should of course be
our version (patches are at http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/~adam/grub/).
