Perhaps you could try without any preseeding first. That way you'll
see all the questions and can decide which you'd rather skip.

Depending on your method, it may be the easiest to simply specify
multiple initrd images (comma separated). Isolinux and co. will
simply merge those. Leave the first as the default initrd from the
installer, and the second containing the extra files.
If the files are in place and functional, they should add new menu
item(s) to the partitioning menu. If they can't see anything new,
then something is wrong.
I'll be offline for a couple of hours now, good luck!
