I seem to recall reading that you can have problems with
partitations where are not _entirely_ within 1023 cylinders,
because the kernel image could happen to be in that part
of the partition which is past the 1023 cylinder.

But I could be wrong, and/or this could have nothing to do with
your particular problem...
