Sony Vaio laptop PCG-SR1K, 128M RAM, 9Gb disk, text mode install.
Autopartitioning had produced the results seen in bug 47128, with
/boot on hda3.

Bootloader configuration suggested two places I might want to install
the bootloader (which it doesn't mention by name):

/dev/hda    Master Boot Record (MBR)   <- this is selected
/dev/hda1   First sector of boot partition

I don't really understand hard drives, partitioning, and sectors, but
surely if autopartitioning produced /boot as /dev/hda3 then the boot
loader might go there, not /dev/hda1 (which is /)
