This installation went very smoothly.  I have only one complaint: the
makeactive command should not have been included in the information
for booting Windows.  My MBR is the default Windows MBR which boots
from the active partition.  Grub is installed on my /boot partition
which is active (bootable).  I boot Windows from grub and don't want
this to change my active partition.  This would prevent me from seeing
grub again when I boot.  d-i should probably never put makeactive
here, but it definitely shouldn't if grub was not installed as the
MBR.  (If it was installed as the MBR, then makeactive has no effect

Here's the menu.lst information generated by d-i.  It's impressive
that it found my Red Hat 9 partition.

     - If grub is not installed to the MBR, do not use the makeactive
       command for chain-loaded OSes, as that would likely make grub
       inaccessible. Closes: #248509
