problem with the installation

my grub doesn't boot proberly.
each time when stage2 should be loaded there occures a 'GRUB read error'.

i've two harddrives an older 6 GB one with windows on it and a new 30 GB one with windows and after it linux on it.
i put the stage2 to file on the older 6 GB disk.

then i installed grub by the following commands:
embed (hd0,0)/grub/fat_stage_1_5 (hd0) [result 14]
install (hd0,0)/grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+14/boot/stage2

what might be interesting is that if i try to start linux by typing kernel (hd1,5)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb8 there is an error message: Error 18: Selected cylinder exceeds maximumsupported by BIOS, but if i repeat the command there is no message at all and it i type boot the system is getting up correct.

what can i do that grub can load the stage2 fi e from my harddrive?
