Definitely I like (1) because my understanding about

I also prefer lilo over grub - but I'd only found packages for grub and
palo - so grub was the easiest solution. And it seemed like lilo only
was usable on 32-bit - perhaps I'm wrong?
Is your /dev/hde28 bootable/active? I know that Debian-Installler which
default uses grub has problems with some SATA-controllers.
Perhaps you should try using (I asume that you are using a controller
and don't have any harddisks on hda hdb hdc or hdd so hde will be
# grub-install (hd0)
What does the machine say when you boot - 'GRUB' or..?
I know you can extract udeb's with dpkg, perhaps dpkg can install udeb's

README needs to be updated, I'm working on a test environment :-)
I have also noticed all off those new packages :-) So I'm working on an
update as well - Thanks :-)
How do you find the idea of using mini.iso - it has a lot of usefull
packages and it boots great - at least on mine.
