You should probably start by getting an SVN checkout of the Sarge branch 
of d-i [1]. Actually, you will first need a Sarge environment to work in.

Your main interest is probably getting a custom kernel [2] onto the image.

Building debian-installer will only get you a kernel and initrd. To 
actually create CD images, you will need the debian-cd package (which is 
not a very easy tool, but feel free to ask for help when you get there).

There is lots of other documentation available in the repository (e.g. for 
kernel-wedge) and on the WIKI [3].

Cheers,

P.S. I've CCed you so far, but it would be nice to know that you're
