How to install without parted?


I have the problem that I cannot install Debian Sarge with kernel 2.6 on my notebook - the partition manager does not recognize the existing partition table. There seems to be a fix in a new parted version, but it seems to come too late for this release. 
Since I need to use kernel 2.6, the question is: how can I install without using parted? As far as I understand, I have to set mountpoints somehow (and format the Debian partition, but that is more easy) and then proceed with the base-install step.

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you for any hint,
