grub-install not present in live cd

I am trying to prepare a bootable USB thumb drive.
I am in the livecd mode (written .iso file on CD-R and booted from it). I have copied all the contents of the iso file on the usb partition. Now when I try to install grub on the drive to make it bootable (as documented at [www.elivecd.org] ) I get the following error:

bash: grub-install: command not found

Do I need to install elive on the hard disk first and then try to make a bootable ( that will be like the 'hen before the egg' situation :P )

I think you must bei root.
open terminal, type su. Command prompt will change from $ to #.
Now the command: grub-install --recheck --no-floppy --root-directory=/media/sdxy /dev/sdx will work....
