I was reading an article in Linux Journal on booting with GRUB. It looked

There is one feature in GRUB that I like, that is, you can browse with your
arrow keys to select the OS you
want to boot. I don't think this exists in LILO.
The problem is this.
In the article they mention that it is possible to boot an OS installed

Win98 (the first 10GB) and linux (debian - potata) (the rest of the HD). I

I am using GRUB version 0.5.93.???, is it perhaps possible that this version
of GRUB does not support large drives?
Should I instead use GRUB version 0.5.96.1 as mentioned in the article?
