I found a solution. I had no luck with the standard grub run from
my Debian etch system disk, so I tried DFS bootable cdrom
(Debian from Scratch) and ran grub-install from there.
That gave me a bootable disk. Weird.
I suspect there was something funky in the Debian installer
CD environment with busybox, etc. I also noticed other
problems like terminal problems in grub and vi - even
after the chroot to my system and running bash.
I had to recreate the missing /dev/null and /dev/console
caused by use of mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev in the chroot
from Debian installer rescue mode, and the system boots fine.
