Thanks Joshua, for your comment.
Now I tried to run woody with kernel 2.4 and it has the same behaviour as sarge with 2.4.
So basically I suspect a problem with my network-card (an onboard Intel Etherexpress 100) and debian's 2.4 kernel/network module driver (e100.o).
However Redhat 9.0 (with 2.4 kernel) is OK.
It apparently is NOT a problem of the d-i, sorry for the suspicion ;-)
Because of time constraints I will be using Redhat and investigate into the problem at a later stage.
Thank you for your efforts!

Can you compare /etc/network/interfaces from both versions? Copy the
interfaces from woody in, boot sarge, and see if that works? If so, post
the correct one and the one generated by d-i in a reply.
I have not experienced any other problem with static net config besides
for human error, yet. :P
