Yeah, debian-installer isn't really designed for machines like the
NSLU2. There are in fact installers that run on the host system, such
as the one for SLIND, but I don't think anyone has adapted them for
Debian and the NSLU2.

That's a very interesting observation. I'll forward this to
debian-boot. Maybe this should be done in lowmem mode.
