Before starting the reinstall, I did some experiments with the existing
installation. Re-inserting the line

gfxmenu (hd0,1)/boot/message

in menu.lst caused the error to pop-up again. I've replaced the message file
with a message file from a 10.1 installation and grub told me that this file
was in the wrong format. I checked stage2 in the following way:

> rpm -q grub
grub-0.97-40
> rpm -V grub
> diff -b /boot/grub/stage2 /usr/lib/grub/stage2

After reverting to the previous message file and executing the command

grub-install /dev/hda

the gfxmenu showed up as it should without error message. I'm reinstalling the
computer currently to check whether this problem shows up again.
