(FTP install via floppies, GRUB 0.96-1, installation via arch/setup utility)
GRUB fails to install, giving the error message "Error: unable to find file" after checking for a file in /boot/grub (grub.menu IIRC), and quitting without further action. Menu.1st is there, but GRUB seems to want something else.
if I recall correctly, I always had to edit the grub file..not change anything, just select it for editing, and then do a :qw (using vi). Likely it just required touching the file or something.

Sorry, the GRUB data files had changed location. I've added symlinks that should work with the 0.7 ftp installer.
There might be an issue relative to the used fs. I allways had problems if I tried to install grub into xfs or jfs partitions, and had to install lilo first during installation procedure. After first boot, I usually removed lilo and installed grub without any problems.

I was using reiserfs 3.6, and installing it to the MBR.
Well, I guess I'll have to see if it works now...
