That kind of defeats the purpose of using the netinst CD as opposed to
netinst floppies... The purpose was to boot the 'cdrom' target, set up
d-i from the CD and then do the rest over the net.

Oh well, you do whatever you like, of course, if you prefer downloading
40+MB and then only using 1.44M of it... ;) The problem is that that
floppy is hideously out of date, since the net floppy hasn't fit on a
single floppy for a long time, so you're testing old stuff.
