I ran into the same problem today (10/04/2010) doing a net install
of squeeze. I found that if I brought up the editor, and deleted the
entire line "search --no-floppy ...." that I could then proceed to
boot the system. The system is a Dell PowerEdge 2650, dual xeon with
a raid 5 array hanging off an Adaptec aacraid controller. I solved my
problem by using dselect to purge grub-pc and installing grub-legacy.
Hope this helps.
