Thanks for suggestions, but it seems to me that problem is not in
booloader. After I isntalled lilo in MBR on /dev/hda, kernel boots OK.
The problem begins when boot scripts are trying to create devices (with
udev I suppose).

A propos, Sarge installer doesn't recommend to install Grub with XFS,
and I like to have XFS :)
