Yes you are right. It is because the isolinux has changed to
isolinux.32?. I don't remember the correct name now. In the last weeks
I have used an own kernel and booted only without the graphical
installer on lenny. So I haven't seen this.
And for all the others, who need to build debian-cd from svn, here are
the commands to do this:
# assume you are staying in your simple-cdd dir
apt-get install svn-build-package
svn checkout svn://svn.debian.org/debian-cd/trunk/
svn-buildpackage -us -uc
dpkg -i ../build-area/debian-cd_*_all.deb
# and if you have an own debian-cd directory
# under my-simple-cdd, than do this:
rm -rf debian-cd/*
cp -a /usr/share/debian-cd/* debian-cd/

This problem has gone, after I have changed the mirror. Enrico has
posted this note in the wiki:
Enrico Note: ftp.it and ftp.de do not seem to work, but I did not manage
to investigate why.
