Yes you can. Even did it yesterday :
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 434998 273600 138938 67% /
tmpfs 124904 0 124904 0% /lib/init/rw
udev 10240 72 10168 1% /dev
tmpfs 124904 0 124904 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3 9970 8594 844 92% /boot
Note that the installer doesn't clear installed packages. So you have
to get a shell and clear /target/var/cache/apt/archives before
resuming the installer.

Same bus. This multia is running off a 500MB disk in an external case,
*with* proper termination.
And if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there...
