google might be your friend. i googled
boot grub logical partition
and got, e.g.,
look at section 126.96.36.199. -- 188.8.131.52
if you do on-the-fly edits during booting grub, you might be able to
test to see what parameters are needed.
Good luck. (The is not such thing as free grub, er, I mean lunch.)
