Package: grub
Version: 0.97-5
Severity: important

*** Please type your bug below this line ***
I have a Fujitsu Scaleo 600. Sometimes the system doesn't start after
the last upgrade one week ago. The message when start the computer is:
"Grub is initializing ....", and after 30 seconds the message is:
"Error 18". Although if Irestart five or more times the system start,
and the grub works well. Is there a bug on this version of grub for my
type of computer?

Thanks in advance, and I hope the error is subsaned.
