Subject: initializing a NetBSD boot block from Linux?

I copied a NetBSD image to a removable hard drive, before installing
Linux on the main hard drive on my laptop.  However, I forgot to do
some magic involving the boot sequences.  I've thus been unable to boot
NetBSD from wd1 when running grub on wd0.  What's the easiest way to
fix this?  I can't easily boot NetBSD and get to that drive, since wd1
and the CD both want the Ultrabay.  I don't have any USB disk
enclosures or CD drives.
