RE: [K12OSN] OT: grub error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory - SOLVED



I solved this issue by installing lilo instead of grub.  I did
everything I could think of to get grub to work, but never succeeded.
At the point in the Debian install where it asks if it's ok to install
grub to the MBR, I chose "go back" and it brought me to a menu which had
the option to use Lilo instead of Grub.

I tried this stuff and no joy.  I also tried installing an older version
of grub (based on advice I found on google) and that didn't work either.
But all the advice I read said to use grub 0.93 (the current version is
0.97).  I tried to compile 0.93, but I got a lot of errors that I didn't
understand.  So I searched and found a deb for 0.95.  It installed, but
didn't fix my problem.

Anybody else got any ideas?
