I'm not sure what you mean with complete configuration.

I've done a small patch for me which allows that the menu.lst file can
lay at the bootp server. GRUB asks the bootp daemon for an IP address
and then loads the menu.lst from the appropriate server. I don't install
GRUB in ROM but at harddisk.
