My systems disagree... happily having multiple boot options in menu.lst.

Well now I'm completely confused ! Yesterday I could only get this guest to boot if I only had one boot option in menu.lst. Tried it again this morning, expecting to reply "well it's definitely not working for me" and ... it's only gone and worked properly :-/

As far as I can remember, I haven't changed anything since I last tried and found it didn't work.

Very odd, but it's working now - I can even reboot the host and have the guest come up properly :-) Can start migrating my production stuff now.

NB - when installing grub-legacy, the version (1.98+20100804-14) in Debian Stable (Squeeze) has the bug that prevents it installing in the guest. Installing grub-common from Testing gets a newer version (1.99~rc1-13) where this is fixed.
