VETO - after reboot, you might be right, but what happens during update-grub?
I'm quite sure, that update-grub broke my system, but I don't have any idea,
who takes part on that job.

Before update 6.0.1 I could install a new system and during last 6 weeks there
have been several updates that triggered an update-grub, which did not break
my system that heavyly, that I wasn't able to handle.

Yes, I tried that, but it is no acceptable solution to me, as the controller
is not as fast as the internal ones and it makes no sense to attach the drives
with expected heavy load to a slow controller.

As every of my drives had an installed grub in mbr, it did not happen. Same
effect than today, where system hangs after grubs welcome message.
I'll try that again with my cleaned drives.

LOL - hey, I'm not that thin-skinned :)
You don't stress me - my crude post came from my infinite disappointment, not
why I was stressed.
I think, before a bug can be fixed, it has to be identified - and who ever can
help on that task is welcome.
When the bug is identified, I'm willing to file a bug report or what ever you
want me to do.
Although I don't believe in that, I accept the possibility, that I made a

I did that fresh installation yesterday or the day before yesterday - so it
leaded to a debian 6.0.1 - as the netinst CD is just an installer which
updates to the current system.
