Not with GRUB v1?

Yes and no. I didn't know there were a GRUB image on the L1 disc (until
now). I received a GRUB image from here:


However, a MD5 checksum shows that this is the same as the one on the L1

Anyway, I redid the whole thing. This time I didn't use the installation
disc, but instead extracted gnu-2009-10-18.tar.gz. Since QEMU works on
virtual harddisks and not virtual partitions I had to boot another
GNU/Linux installation disc to create the partition table and the
partition itself (mkfs.ext2 -o GNU /dev/hda1). After that I could mount
it on the host system by using -o loop,offset=32256 (so I extracted the
archive using the host system).

Now I could run native-install (inside QEMU, of course). It has been
running for many many hours. It ends with:

Errors were encountered while processing:

Immediately before that there is output "Setting up apt-utils
(0.7.24) ...". Before that it is setting up apt (0.7.24) (some messages
about GPG keys being processed) and before that gnupg-curl (1.4.10-2).

How do I fix this? Is it safe to run the script again?
