Meanwhile I managed the problem(s):
- using the newer installer from e.g. 20050926

But still I had the problem that the newly installed system didn't boot
correctly, because
- I have a fix installed USB Card reader that is detected
  Successfully by usb-storage driver
- sata-sil was not detected (or not checked?) during initial
  Default driver loading in installer
- sata-sil was loaded just during harddrive detection in installer
  AFTER usb-storage driver was already installed as a default driver
  => my harddrive was detected as drive /dev/sde
  during install process
- all setup was done for /dev/sde
- but when booting, the sata-sil driver is (of course) loaded BEFORE
  The usb-storage driver => harddrive is detected as /dev/sda and the
  Root filesystem cannot be mounted

SOLUTION:
- use expert installation mode
- do all default actions except:
  always DESELECT usb-storage driver so the harddisk is
  Detected as /dev/sda and the system boots fine after ;-=)

SUGGESTION:
- if possible, unload previous loaded drivers in installer if no
harddisk
  was detected and the driver is selected by hand to avoid
  having harddisk as 'wrong' device in /dev/

Anyway,
Debian is great!

Cheers,
Stefan.
