Bender and GRUB "legacy"

Hi, I tried to boot Genode scenarios from my bootable flash stick. It 
uses GRUB 1 "Legacy".  Tried to boot Genode/Nova with bender with GRUB 
"legacy" (actually, GRUB4DOS). I have the following entries in menu.lst:

title  Sculpt scenario (Genode/Nova)

kernel /genode/bender

module /genode/hypervisor hypervisor iommu serial novpid novga

module /genode/sculpt/image.elf image.elf

This scenario just hangs when booting. Does this work with GRUB2 only?

In GRUB2, I see loading the "multiboot2.mod" module. Is this a new 
version of Multiboot protocol? Could Bender work with older version of 
multiboot protocol? Or, is it possible to use Genode/Nova without Bender 
somehow with GRUB1?

Also, is it possible for Genode build system to avoid assembling all 
modules into image.elf, so I could load them separately as multiple 
modules? (at least, older Genode versions did so)

10nx in advance!
