OK, I had a look and found nothing. But, as in the info file, the error
29 is described as "This would generally only occur during an install of set 
active partition command", even if this was not the case, I have tried
the installation via floppy.

Success, but not straightforward. There is a distinction that I do not
clearly understand. When one creates a floppy (with a ext2fs), and makes
it bootable, if there is a menu.lst stage2 is patched automagically with
the location via the `setup' command. 
When I have tried the same commands (modulo
the target device), I had to specify explicitely via `install' to patch
with a menu.lst, in order to have GRUB i(put in the MBR) using this menu.

What is the difference ?
