Installing memtest86 in Lenny fails to copy the actual binary

Howdy, fellow Debianites!
I tried to install memtest86 on my Lenny box (using Synaptic).
Everything appeared to go smoothly, even a new "memtest" entry wass
added to my grub.cfg - but the actual memtest86.bin file was never
copied to disk! Interestingly enough, the same happened when I tried to
install memtest86+ ... Of course, the "memtest" grub entry now fails
with a "file not found" error.
Any ideas? Happened to anybody else?
Let me just add that my / partition is not full.
Are you running i386 or amd64 hardware and distribution?
What files do you see in /boot:
$ ls -al /boot/mem*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 124648 Mar 15 04:21 /boot/memtest86.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 160284 Jan 28 04:03 /boot/memtest86+.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 162464 Jan 28 04:03 /boot/memtest86+_multiboot.bin
I have a separate /boot partition and sometimes it gets un-mounted
without me doing anything )-:.
I've had problems with the memtest86+_multiboot.bin on i386 under GRUB
1.98, but need to do more investigation.
