Make sure to delete the partition table before you reformat it as ext3. I've
found that's necessary to make Grub do the right thing. 

I wasted some time a while back having just reformatted the FAT partition as
ext3 - Grub would not boot until I wiped the partition table and then created
a new ext3 table.

Do you have an LPC header? If so, you could look at the artecgroup dongle.
