I can't make it. I think it was a known bug of d-i in April (and still
is). I know there was a way of fooling the d-i with mounting the
partition manually but I can't find the right order of steps anymore. So
I thought I wouldn't use the d-i at all, or perhaps invoked the "install
base system" step manually from 2nd console.

For example, I tried something like "debootstrap sarge /target /cdrom"
but it didn't work.

> I've no experience of aranym

it's actually a general atari problem and aranym cannot work around it
