That would be very cool. Judging from my limited experience with building, the
syslinux should be updated for proper building without root, though.
I have filed a whishlist bug in addition to the debian installer bug.
In the meantime I've built my own 2.02 packages and changed the build/Makefile
$(FLOPPY_IMAGE) target to something along the lines of
        # syslinux is used to make the floppy bootable.
        mcopy -i$(FLOPPY_IMAGE).new $(KERNEL) ::linux
        mcopy -i$(FLOPPY_IMAGE).new $(INITRD) ::initrd.gz
        todos < syslinux.cfg > $(TEMP)/syslinux.cfg
        mcopy -i$(FLOPPY_IMAGE).new $(TEMP)/syslinux.cfg ::syslinux.cfg

        syslinux $(SYSLINUX_OPTS) $(FLOPPY_IMAGE).new
If course, I'll happily post a patch for the whole deal (cleaning out user mount
hack etc.).
