So the passing of the boot option and the initialisation of the display
worked for you?

This does not sound right.  AFAIK, I did not include CDROM detection
support on the disks you downloaded yet.  Also, when I tried
the install, it basically ran through, without presenting me the main-menu
at all.  It could probably help if you could describe
what happened during the install a little more detailed.

The debian-installer directory on cvs.debian.org has a doc

After you installed installer modules, you should have
a standard fdisk.  At least I got that when I tried those
