Install grub to CD, but use HD grub.conf?

   I need to create a grub boot CD for a laptop so that I can dual boot 
FC3 with Windows without touching the laptop drive's MBR.

   This seems straightforward enough if I hard-code the kernel version 
to use (in a CD menu.lst), but can I do it in such a way as to make the 
CD grub read the HD grub.conf so that it'll automatically work after 
kernel upgrades?

   Kernels seem to no longer maintain symlinks in /boot of vxlinuz 
(etc.) to the latest version, otherwise I'd probably be able to use that.
