module size limits?

Hi, before going deep into debugging this,
does anybody know if GRUB Legacy put/has a limit on the size of modules?
I'm trying to load a big module, and as soon as its size approaches 27MB,
my thing stops working. But it's clearly a problem with the size of the
I'm not sure yet if it's my fault or GRUB's. But somebody may know already.

The uncompressed size is 0x1aaa02b (just below 27MB), I tried
compressing it,
tried booting from a eltorito ISO image and directly from am ext3 file
Everything failed.

As I said, I'm not sure if it's something in GRUB or not. My next steps
will be to
make a CRC or something of the module before using it, to check if it's
stored in memory.

As a said note, all my bootable code works natively on Linux too, and in
linux it
can handle "modules" of up to 512MB at least without any problems.
