You were on the right track creating the images-1.44 directory. But you need
to recreate the complete debian mirror structure under 'current' for the
installer. (You need only include the pertinent files for your
subarchitecture/flavor.) Check where you got the files, if they're in the
'current' directory on the mirror, put them inside a 'current' directory on
your hd, if they're in a subdirectory like idepci, then create that
subdirectory and put them in there.
