You were using a daily build of the installer and we're currently making
major changes after the Lenny release. This was the result of such a
change. Should be OK now.

That is normal. linux-image-2.6 is a meta package that will automatically
pull in the most recent kernel. Installing it is recommended.

Can you provide any information on why grub failed? Without that we cannot
do anything. The syslog file of the installation has been saved in
/var/log/installer/syslog and may have some information.
