So, anyway, let's go over this and discuss the problems you had. :)

And then q for letting it go on and install the things you selected?
Some things should definitely have been installed automatically.

That is kinda weird, anna (the "Load installer modules" step) should
have installed tools (and menu items) for partitioning, mkfs et.c. I'm
downloading the feb 27 version of the iso right now to check up on this.
How much RAM do you have? Could you boot it up, and from a shell type
"df -h" so we can see how large the created ramdisk is?

Yes, it's not there yet.

Well, anna should have installed the tools for it...

udeb stands for micro-deb, they are tiny debian packages that we use in
the intaller.

Nope, there is no documentation for d-i yet. You'll have to remember
that this is for sarge, which isn't released yet, so we do not guarantee
that anything works! :)
