First step (chainloaded from grub1):
yum install grub2 gettext
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Reboot and choose "GRUB 2" from the grub1 menu to ensure that the
chainloading works. The "GRUB 2" entry should load the grub1
equivalent of stage 1.5 but located in "/boot/grub2", which should
then load the grub2 menu. If you're satisfied with the boot, you can
go to the next stage.

Second step ("full" install):
grub2-install /dev/sda

(I vaguely remember filing a bug report for grub2 to depend on gettext
a few months ago.)
