I'm afraid that's me :)

You explicitly told me to run grub-install from outside the chroot
(so, the Knoppix one), so I didn't do anything else.

Well, you should have told me then :) I'll try to install grub from the chroot.

Yeah, but unfortunately, due to my small root partition, I had to
remove the older kernel. I tried to reinstall it, but 2.6.12 had been
removed from etch.
About your next mail: that device command simply isn't available in
the grub commandline that I get. It doesn't exist. Maybe it's too old?
I think it's grub 0.95. According to Knoppix it's 0.95+cvs20040624-17.
