It seems like a very nice tool, but I couldn't get it to work.

First I had to edit /etc/dfsbuild/dfs.cfg, because the mirror setting for
[repo amd64] was pointing to a non-existent location (may be due to the
recent move of the repository). I changed it to 
mirror = http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/debian-amd64/ 
which seems to work. 

Then I commented out the default mirror setting pointing to localhost as
it caused a fatal error when trying to rm some files. 

Now it bails out with:

Creating Packages files...
Building: unstable dists/unstable/main/binary-amd64 Packages
Creating Release files...
Building: unstable Release
Building: unstable Contents

All done, exiting.
Running: rm -v
Fatal error: exception Not_found

Anyway, I built a Kanotix-64 Live CD and ran "grub-install /dev/hda"
from that. Sadly it didn't solve the problem. The system still sees no
boot device there after rebooting.
