Installing using /pub/cdimage-testing/daily/i386/20050527/debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso
and entering partition /dev/hda1 on /boot, /dev/hda6 on /, installs kernel
2.6.8 correctly in /boot. However, GRUB is now configured incorrectly:
  boot (hd0,0)
  kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8
  initrd /boot/something

This fails to boot since /boot is on (hd0,0). Therefore, '/boot' should be
removed from both 'kernel' and 'initrd' line from GRUB configuration.
Changing this resumes booting (instead of 'cannot find file').

Maybe related:
After finishing installation, /etc/fstab contains
and /boot contains
  lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 1 2004-11-14 01:09 boot -> .
