I believe this problem has been discussed on the grub mailing list and might be 
fixed in the latest version of grub.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-08 19:59:26 UTC
It's fixed in GRUB CVS and our current packages have the fix included.  Updated
packages with the fix can be found at http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/RPMS/
