Re (4): Installing lilo in Squeeze after booting from the Lenny installer CD.

Yes.  I'd missed Alternative number 1 and followed 2 
approximately.  I used the ncurses interface whereas 
you refer to the CLUI.

The extant system has 2.6.30 and 2.6.32 in /boot.  The 
"daily built" Squeeze installer worked with no snags.

OK, the installation default is "delay=0" but even 
with non-zero delay I couldn't get the Lilo prompt.
Finally I changed "install=bmp" to "install=menu" 
and booted single with no problem.

The system is on its feet again.
