RHEL/CentOS 5's GRUB is buggy, in that it doesn't always read the whole 
of the BIOS's memory map. See and in particular 
comment 7 where there's a link to a replacement GRUB which incorporates 
the patch that was first offered to Red Hat in July 2007. The issue 
likely affects other distros GRUBs too, since GRUB is moribund.
