I am not sure if this is a bug.
I upgraded my systems to a 160gb drive. I have an older AMI bios which does not support disks this large.
However I am able to get it to work with command line grub.
I specify the boot device, the disk geometry and the kernel on the grub command line. These same command lines will not work if I store them and then select them via the grub menu. This all works because the linux kernel is able to recognize this larger disk and ignore the bios.
Maybe grub needs a paramter to ignore the bios  or it already has one.
