Yup, I did a reinstall of Etch. I just did a minimal install this time
(unchecked all the options in tasksel). I was able to get througt the
base install and right up to the installation of GRUB and the reboot and
could log in. In other words, no surprises. Etch is installable.

I've not got through the base install the Lenny CDs, however.
