0.97 vs bzImages

I have grub 0.97 installed by way of gentoo's sys-boot/grub-0.97-r3.ebuild.

My / is jfs; /boot is not a separate filesystem.

Grub refuses to boot any kernels whose bzImage is larger than approx
2.5 Megs.  (2504 K boots, 2552 K does not; I've yet to determine the
exact threshold.)

I get error 2 (ERR_BAD_FILETYPE).

I can't tell from the src exactly what the problem is, but someone on
lkml has confirmed that lilo can boot larger bzImages than that, so I
have to presume it is a grub bug....

Any ideas?
