That's OK; with the exception of monolithic builds, partman is retrieved
from the archive at run time. Not all of d-i goes into the initrd.

That's OK, but will get you the current daily rather than rc2.

If you're using the cdrom initrd, perhaps you haven't constructed a CD
with all the udebs to go with it in the form of an archive? debian-cd is
what does this in Debian, although it's complicated to operate.
