Error 28: Cannot fit item into memory.

I am getting this error28: cannot fit selected item into memory:
THis happened the first time I tried to boot after installing Redhat7.3
My system has 384MB DDR RAM and the graphics card takes 32MB of this.
Is there any connection?

I had the exact same problem with an ASUS A7N266-VM MoBo. I upgraded to GRUB .93 and was finally able to boot. You can get it from here:
