GRUB can manage with bigger partitions/drives, it's your BIOS that *may*
have that limit.  

At this early stage of booting up, it's the BIOS that needs to access
where your boot files are.  Once that's been managed, your software
takes over (the other stages of GRUB), and it doesn't have this small
partition limit.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
