Just realized that the NewWorld partition needed to be 20mb (not 1) to accommodate GRUB...
So, I tried installing with a 20mb NewWorld partition, this time with all the custom mount points back in place, and it installs fine, and boots up very quick.
I'd like to congratulate everyone on a damn good job. GRUB is miles nicer than Yaboot, and it took a great while + some moxy-and-a-half to get here. Let's keep at it.
Go team. :-)
Okay, so I tried again with everything on default mount points, and the same error and message appear.
This appears to be some kind of problem with manual vs. automatic partitioning...
Just wanted to put this out there.

I tried the 04-12 images today, and manually partitioned the disk to this:
Sda2, 1mb NewWorld partition
Sda3, 1gb Ext2 partition mounted at /boot. Noatime.
Sda4, 20gb Ext4 partition mounted at /. Noatime.
Sda5, 5gb swap
Sda6, 94gb Ext4 partition mounted at /home. Noatime.
Installation goes well, then GRUB fails to install, giving the same message we've always seen.
Here's what syslog says:
Mk-hfs-bootstrap: the HFS bootstrap partition couldn't be found. Cannot continue! Exiting.
Main-menu: cat: can't open /var/lib/partman/devices/=dev=SDB/string of numbers/mountpoint: no such file or directory
WARNING**: Configuring grub-installer failed with error code 1
I suspect it has to do with the noatime mount points, although this has never happened before. Unless, of course, this is GRUB specific.
I'll try again without them...
