Why netboot CD needs to wget debian-installer?

I think installer wants files from remote mirror that are already in

I booted from pre-RC2 floppies, boot, root, and cd-drivers. Then
installer found SCSI CD-drive and pre-RC2 netboot cd image there.

Then I told it to use my own partial mirror, created with command 

debmirror /opt/mirror/debian --nosource --passive \
  --host=ftp.fi.debian.org --dist=sarge --arch=i386 \
  --section=main,contrib,non-free --progress

and served with HTTP server. 

But installer fails to use it, claiming file not found. From
/var/log/apache2/access.log I find - - [03/Oct/2004:13:10:00 +0300] "GET /debian//dists/sarge/Release HTTP/1.1" 200 22828 "-" "Wget" - - [03/Oct/2004:13:10:03 +0300] "GET /debian//dists/testing/Release HTTP/1.1" 200 22828 "-" "Wget" - - [03/Oct/2004:13:10:03 +0300] "GET /debian//dists/testing/main/debian-installer/binary-i386/Packages.gz HTTP/1.1" 404 422 "-" "Wget" - - [03/Oct/2004:13:10:03 +0300] "GET /debian//dists/testing/main/debian-installer/binary-i386/Packages HTTP/1.1" 404 419 "-" "Wget"

And /var/log/apache2/error.log states

[Sun Oct 03 13:10:03 2004] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/debian/dists/testing/main/debian-installer
[Sun Oct 03 13:10:03 2004] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/debian/dists/testing/main/debian-installer

Surely the debian-installer is in the netboot CD? I need to use an
official Debian mirror to get past this point, which is kinda bad
since I do have my own partial mirror. 

After the Debian base system is installed, I can configure apt to use
my partial mirror and install the rest of Debian from there.
