Why didn't you state that you were running F8?  If it makes you feel
any better here is the changelog for grub-0.97-33.1-fc8:

Changelog

* Thu May 29 2008 Peter Jones <pjones redhat com> - 0.97-33.1
  - Backport F-9's grub to F-8.
* Tue Apr 08 2008 Peter Jones <pjones redhat com> - 0.97-33
  - Rewrite ia32 efi call wrapper to make the makefile simpler.

F9's grub is at 0.97-33. The previous version for F8 was 0.97-33.
Unless Peter Jones made some dramatic changes I don't see how this
backporting is going to adversely affect your system.
