Same here, except I installed squeeze (netinst CD downloaded 3 or 4 days ago). I was surprised to see only GRUB2 available.

This is a server, not a gaming console, that I'm loading up. And I have to admin it via SSH from 1K miles away. I'd really like to be able to use the hopelessly antiquated, but known working, GRUB legacy.

Squeeze maintainers, Did I not see something I should have? Is GRUB2 in good enough condition that it can be used on production servers? Is the next CD going to have GRUB legacy available?
