The available choices during x86 installation are :
- install GRUB 2 as the boot loader
- install LILO as the boot loader
- do not install a boot loader

May I ask why you want to install GRUB legacy ? It has been obsolete and deprecated for a very long time, and does not officially support recent filesystems such as ext4 and btrfs nor the GPT partition table scheme.
I know that some distributions provide patched versions of GRUB legacy with ext4 support, but I don't know if Debian does the same.

:sigh:
people really need to learn to search before posting: https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?qu ... tall+howto
and yes, you'll have to put in some effort yourself.

also, i don't see what is wrong with using grub-legacy.

Did you try this?:
Code: Select all
aptitude install grub-legacy
