Not sure, but I know grub insists on loading to a certain portion of ram,i.e. a specific memory address. If something else is trying to use it it won't work, i.e. another hardware device might also insist on that memory address. You may have reserved that sector of ram that grub and something else both need. Lilo is not as picky.
