The only further details I have is that I didn't see any sign of GRUB on any of the times I rebooted after an install.  The word "GRUB" never appeared on the screen, just the folder-with-a-question-mark icon.

I suspect I had grub v1 on there for a minute or two, the one time I tried the Lenny amd64 disc.  I had the same results there, as well.
