7.xx and 8.11 i386 ISO image for the installation on an old Intel desktop board, 1GB of RAM and a motley collection of IDE hard drives of various sizes.

The install runs and attempts to install grub on /dev/hdg (g? really? )
So, I tried again, and again... no luck.
Went with LILO, and still no luck - tried the advanced to pick the device on which to install, with no luck on that either.

I can install Openfiler, freenas, ipcop, Ubuntu desktoo and server all on this hardware just fine.

Any ideas?
