                 Release: 0.94
         Reproducibility: Every Time
         Planned Release: 



I've two physical IDE hard drives. One on the primary master, and the other
one on the primary slave. The capacity are 120 GB and 80 GB. I use fdisk on
Linux to partition them. The first one has 255 heads and 63 sects. per cyl.,
4 partitions (NTFS/NTFS/Linux/Linux swap), the second one has 16 heads and 63
sects. per cyl., 2 partitions (NTFS/Linux). I've linux kernel vmlinuz and
initrd.img on /dev/hdb2, while I'm trying to boot them from grub command
line, Grub lock up and lose responding to the user.

I typed: kernel (hd1,1)/... and press <tab> to have grub read the file list
on (hd1,1), the program deadlock.

Also, I typed: ls (hd1,..., and press <tab> after ",", grub can display a
incomplete list (I remember the list not quite exactly):

(hd1,0), NTFS...

(hd1,1), (dead here)

I guess, Grub cannot recognize the geometry (16 heads, 63 sectors) of my
second hard drive correctly.

Please try to fix it.
