Did the same thing and when asked which hda[] it should boot from just hit
enter. I should have put "3" into those brackets in my case, but didn't.
So reinstalled but can't download anyting to get the system going again,
because it's missing glibc-2.9-1 which is a virtual package apparently.

So my system is down for the count, and considering installing again, but
Lenny this time, because it will work.

So wait to see if someone has a fix before you attempt to install testing
again. Because you may hit the same wall.
