Grub and logical partitions

Can grub boot from a logical partition?
It seems from my reading that it cannot.
But I found that I could in fact boot from /dev/sda5
if I used grub interactively, starting with
then using tab to look for kernel and initrd
and finally booting.
However, if I put exactly the same commands in grub.conf
the boot failed, with "File not found ...".
(Nb I am not using LVM, sda5 is a logical partition
within the extended partition sda4.)
Can some guru explain this to me please.
