Forgot to mention one detail I thought was not important, but
apparently it was. There was a third SCSI disk, which I told the
installer to ignore. It was on position 0, whatever that means. I
thought it would be irrelevant, since it has nothing bootable, but it
must have confused the installer. In any case, I removed it from the
system, and started rescue mode from the DVD, and after some fiddling
with grub-install and the grub shell, it finally booted.
The grub shell, which apparently assumes an English keyboard, is
especially fun if your keyboard is German. Except for English letters,
numbers and control keys, every character is somewhere else.
