grub-install in chroot


I've been following the instructions on installing a Debian GNU/Linux system [1] and
found an issue that was not completely covered: I could not run grub-install in chroot
because there are no /dev/hdX special files. So the command to be ran in chroot

grub-install /dev/hda

should be run as like that outside the chroot:

grub-install --recheck --root-directory=/mnt/debinst /dev/hda

I found this hint here [2] and hope it may be useful.
