When it comes to installing grub press ESC or select cancel to get
back to the main menu. This will automatically lower the debconf
priority. Continuing with the install (at that lower priority) should
then ask you if you want grub or lilo, choose the later. If it doesn't
repeat (or lower the debconf priority in the main menu).

Alternatively you can start D-I in expert mode but then you get all
the questions even before grub.

Is there one from the 24th? I think I removed all the images with
kernel version skews so anything you find should be fine. (if not tell
me and it's gone).
