Well, I wrote down in paper some of the differences with the John's document
and the relevant part was:

grub> cat (hd0,2)/boot/grub/tester
(and it worked)
grub> kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8
grub> initrd (hd0,2)/boot/initrd_usb.gz
grub> boot
(and booted ok)

and the current grub configuration, which seems to work (allways) on the D620 is

timeout=10

title Fedora8initial
      kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8
      initrd   (hd0,2)/boot/initrd_usb.gz

title Fedora8-2.6.23.9-85.fc8
      kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.63.9-85.fc8
      initrd   (hd0,2)/boot/initrd-2.6.23.9-85.img

The partions in the usb disk are:
sda1 - NTFS
sda2 - swap
sda3 - Linux

Regards,
Miguel.
