When you reach the last step in the installation (where it asks you to
remove the installation media), press Alt+F2 to switch to the second
virtual console.  Press Enter to display a shell prompt.  Enter the
following command and press Enter:

 mv target/boot.cfg target/boot

Press Alt+F1 to switch back to the installer and finish the
installation as before.

You may also have problems booting due to bug 640418 in
base-installer.  To avoid that problem, use the ext2 filesystem for
your root partition.

I think that the installation page on the wiki has a pretty good
summary of the status, aside from the issues mentioned above.
