/ was mounted on /dev/sda2, CD-ROM was master on par. ATA, i.e. hda Output of lspci -knn (or lspci -nn): see attachment lspci.out.gz Base System Installation Checklist: [O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it Initial boot:  Detect network card:  Configure network:  Detect CD:  Load installer modules:  Detect hard drives:  Partition hard drives:  Install base system:  Clock/timezone setup:  User/password setup:  Install tasks:  only minimal system w/o desktop etc Install boot loader: [E] Overall install:  Comments/Problems:For some reason, Grub and Linux had different opinions about drive numbering, so I had to install Grub manually to (hd1) after setting root to (hd1,1), and specifying (hd1,1) as root in menu.lst too.
Alternatively, I could copy /dev/sda2 over to /dev/sdb2 to boot successfully. Everything else was OK. Thanks for the great job!
