I compiled grub-0.97 from sources on my x86_64-pc-linux-gnu system. My tool
chain is gcc-4.1.1/binutils-2.17. The GRUB thus built works to some extent. I
can create a boot floppy, as described in the info pages, and use it to load
and boot my linux kernel manually. However, if I try to install grub on my
hard disk, I get weird errors:

sarkovy:~# /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda

    GNU GRUB  version 0.97  (1433218132K lower / 1433218132K upper memory)

 [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
   lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
   completions of a device/filename. ]
grub> root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x1
grub> setup  --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --prefix=/boot/grub (hd0)

Error 1433218151: Invalid device requested


If I boot from a floppy disk and uset the 'setup' command, the results are
very similar, only the memory values, disk/partition numbers and error
numbers, which are obviously bogus, are different.
