Bug#387855: GRUB

The installer asked a number of debconf questions that I would have
expected to be preseeded (probably becuase I didn't specify

Installing the bootloader failed. The installer didn't
create a /boot/grub/menu.lst, so it couldn't install GRUB.

When I booted into the system (after manually installing GRUB), the
system had a user account for me (apparently, it got that from the
preseed), but root was set to sudo (even though in the end, I had
asked it not to do that). I had to reboot from a boot CD and poke
around in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow in order to figure that out.

I'll report anything else I find here, but I think I'm beyond the
behavior of the installer, now that I'm downloading the 900MB of
packages that used to be on the system before I reinstalled it.
