I can send to you grub2 version 1.98 on iso. But I doubt it will do you 
any good. Problem of old bios and LVM issues of large hd affect only 
grub-legacy. As far as I know, grub2 has taken care of this.

If you are on grub-legacy, I can suggest creating a small boot partition 
of 150 Mb to the first partition and this will solve the problem.

Sorry I cannot be of more help, but I'll send to you grub2 version 1.98 
direct to you.
