GRUB did install and the system rebooted.  But GRUG got the wrong
partition as root device!  Within GRUB itself I had to edit the boot
menu and had to change the line `root (hd0,0)' [my swap], to `root
(hd0,1)' [my real root].  It took me some minutes before I know what was
wrong tho, as the error message GRUB gave when trying to boot was:
   Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xfd
   kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-1-386 root:/dev/md1 ro
   Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition.
   Press any key to continue...
 Mentioning my partition type it did mislead me for some minutes about
 what was really wrong.  But that's just my fault.

 The real problem was that the installer had the wrong root device
 written in GRUB's menu.lst file.

 Hope this helps

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
