I didn't forget about this.  Unfortunately, hardware hates me in the
last weeks it seems.  On my d-i test-machine[1], syslinux doesn't boot from
floppy anymore (god knows why), and some days later, two floppy drives died
in succession.

/debian/dists/sid/main/installer-i386/beta4/images/floppy/access on every
FTP mirror.

[1] For proper testing, I need access to the screen content even if
    assistive technology drivers didn't get loaded.  I do this with a
    RealWeasel, a VGA card thats actually a VT100 emulator.  So I need
    two machines, and I can't just test d-i whereever I want :-(.
