It seems to have been caused by the LILO upgrade. Bjørn Mork showed
me how to downgrade the LILO to the potato version.
I added the following line in /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ftp.no.debian.org/debian/ potato main non-free contrib
I created an /etc/apt/preferences file, containing:
Pin: version 1:21.*
I then did
apt-get install lilo
and then did a reboot, which worked perfectly.
