OK, so what do you really mean by "grub 1"?  You either have
grub-0.97-... or grub2-1.99-... a.k.a. grub2.  I thought that by
"grub 1" you meant the former.

Forget about stuff you do not want to bother to check in documentation.
Write a boot entry in configuration file of something you are using
and that will be about it.  If you are using grub-0.97 then this
will look somewhat of this sort (only adjust _all_ settings to your
circumstances) and it will be in a file to which /etc/grub.conf
is a symlink:

title Anaconda
   kernel (hd0,1)/boota/vmlinuz repo=hd:/dev/sda<X>:/<path_to_a_directory_with_an_iso_image>/
   initrd (hd0,1)/boota/initrd.img

If you are using some other bootloader then change all of that
