well it seems like the splashimage line caused my problems:

Strange that grub isnt able to handle this.
Now my serial line works perfectly.

i would like to boot via serial line on a x86 pc. Now when i boot the
machine grub writes "press any key to continue" to the serial port
but when i press any key, the grub menu is shown on the monitor
of the booting computer and not in my terminal emulator.

Grub seems to react to my input via serial line because it
directly runs the menu on the monitor after i pressed a key.

The serial line seems to work because while and after booting
i can see kernel output in the terminal emulator and login also works.

My configuration:

default         0
serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=10 serial console
timeout         5

# Kernels

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.23-gentoo-r3
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.23-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0=/console=tty1 console=ttyS0,9600 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda1 udev vga=0x318 video=vesafb;mtrr:3,ywrap,address@hidden
initrd          /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.23-gentoo-r3

As you could see i m using gentoo with 2.6.23 kernel.
My grub version is 0.97

Thanks for any help.
