I ripped out 2*256 megs and replaced them with 2*64 that I had collecting dust somewhere and tried again: different error this time around but again while setting up debconf:

Setting up debconf ( ...
Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /usr/lib/perl/5.8/Fcntl.pm line 170, <DEBCONF_CONFIG> chunk 3.
debconf: Problem setting up the database defined by stanza 3 of /etc/debconf/conf.
 is not a valid Fcntl macro at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf DbDriver/File.pm line 34.
dpkg: error processing debonf (--install)
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
umount: /target/dev/pts: No such file or directory
umount: /target/dev/shm: No such file or directory
umount: /target/proc/bus/usb: Invalid argument

--- so I the memory might not be the culprit here. time to run some more diagnostics on the drive then.
