No, i have seen no problems on my test installations when using the

Stage 1.5 (resp. Stage 2 error 2): Aaron posted a link on error codes
where this error code is "Selected disk doesn't exist", on gnu.org
grub site it says: "2 : Bad file or directory type".

menu.lst (and the content of /boot/grub/device.map.
