I've followed up the grub2 side of this at Savannah. However, for Debian-installer, I think a simpler solution is to detect a HPT37x controller by PCI ID or similar (eg. udev loading the hpt366 module or pata_hpt37x or pata_hpt366 would be a good test, I think) and in that case install debian-mbr in the MBR and grub or grub2 in the partition that holds /boot instead. That saves any dependency on an update to grub to fix this conflict. It's how I'm booting this server right now, for example. ^_^ (Sorry for repeat, forgot to CC original) -- Paul "TBBle" Hampson, Paul.Hampson@Pobox.com Shorter .sig for a more eco-friendly paperless office.
