without knowing what you're trying to do, it's a bit hard to tell, but, 
basically, i would tell you not to use the grid and create a 
typographical grid on the master page, instead.

you can read about it in wikipedia and use page > manage guides > rows 
and columns to create one.

just use the margins as a reference and you have a very powerfull (and 
flexible) tool in your hand :-)

personally, i would suggest you to use the grid for vector graphics, but 
not for DTP work... other people will probably have different opinions :-)
