Strangely enough I'm seeing this too with Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.3 amd64
netinst image.  It's failing to install grub-pc to /target/ after
selecting Guided, use whole disk and setup lvm with separate /home

I wouldn't post this here, but it appears it may be a common bug and
that kFreeBSD isn't the only one affected here.  I've not tried on
real hardware, but i'm getting the error on VirtualBox 4.0.12.
