I noticed something peculiar when I booted 3.4 installed to hard drive (not frugal -- wanted to use this to test something) via dsl install at boot.
I usually use LILO but decided to try GRUB for a change. I selected the first GRUB line option and noticed when it started to boot that it the line included frugal even though it wasn't a frugal install. After booting, I went to mount a CDROM that I use for MyDSL extensions and it wouldn't mount at /cdrom. So I went through /mnt/auto to mount cdrom there. I started to wonder if I'd installed frugal so I looked at stats and saw that the partition is indeed 197.1 MB used with the rest free.
After editing menu.lst, I rebooted and all is well aside from those two mount points. I tried mounting a floppy. Same thing as the CDROM. It wasn't mounting at /floppy, but I could in /mnt/auto.
The most recent hard drive install I did was 3.1 (LILO, not GRUB) and I don't recall an issue like this. I don't know if you've changed dsl-hdinstall recently, but it's not a major problem and I've fixed it with a quick edit. Just thought you should know about it for future reference.
