Actually I made a very interesting bandwidth savvy installation, which I 
could recommend to all those who don't have very fast DSL connections.

1) I downloaded FC3 rescue CD (~70MB).
2) Booted from it and made a FTP install from a local mirror, selecting only 
the packages that I wanted.
3) After that I updated and installed the planet via apt.

I didn't try a minimal package selection, but next time I will, so I can 
avoid downloading and installing many old packages which anyway I will 
update hours later (xfce, cups, etc).


Well, once again, the old recipe works.

1) Find a problem.
2) Try to solve it for 5 hours.
3) Ask for help in a public forum.

You will find the solution for yourself 5 minutes after step 3.

I moved my /boot folder to another partition but didn't update grub.conf 
properly, so grub was still booting from the old /boot and this somehow 
fooled grubby.

Thanks a lot, Fernando, for your lightning fast answer, which was already 
hitting the nail on the head. Geez, how many commercial OS's have a customer 
support like this?
