i've had this problem with the dell 2450 - it worked fine with grub for RH7.X
and RH8/9 but wouldn't with RHEL3.  in the end i gave up and used lilo which
works fine but i haven't yet bothered to lodge a bug report with redhat (or
dell) about this.

have you looked at bugzilla yet and/or called redhat support ?

i've tried the obvious things like having /boot (128M) and fdisking the
disk and so on with no luck.

'me too'.  lilo is a workaround but not a great one considering.
