Hi, I was wondering if someone in this community could help me troubleshoot why 
my new Lemote Yeelong won't boot periodically.

I'm thinking it's not an actual Grub configuration issue as the machine was 
booting normally for a month. And I made no changes to the grub config file 
other than installing a newer kernel using 'aptitude install.'

Here is the error I occasionally get from Grub loading the kernel:
Booting 'gNewSense GNU/LINUX, with'

alloc magic is broken at 0x8ff8d810
Aborted. Press any key to exit.

Here is my environment:
Linux version (address@hidden) (gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian 
PMON: PMON2000 2.1 (Bonito) #291:
al = /dev/fs/address@hidden/boot/vmlinux
Grub Version 1.97
Root filesystem: /dev/hda1

Grub entry is:
insmod ext2
set root=(ata0,1)
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid -set 82d34e24-6e0c04e7a-90e6-06517e7757de
linux /boot/vmlinux- 
root=UUID=82d34e24-6e0c-4e7a-90e6-06517e7757de ro resume=/dev/hda5 console 
initrd /boot/initrd.img-

I get the error with any of my kernels including:

After starting to compose this email, the machine just booted normally after I 
had the Grub choice menu on my screen for 10 minutes.  I'm wondering if the 
hard drive isn't spinning up quick enough for Grub when it boots normally.

Please let me know what methods/commands I could use to try to figure out why 
Grub boot loading periodically doesn't work.
