Would it be difficult to have it offer a "CD-ROM" option as well as the
usual network mirrors?

In d-i menu that option doesnt exist. Probably some component is missing.

Why should it?
There are other components in d-i that support installing from CD.

d-i is very modular, which means that to get the installation method you
want, you need to combine the correct components into a coherent whole,
especially the components that are included in the initrd that is used to
boot the installer.

I suspect that the original poster made some mistakes in this, but as he
did not provide any real info on what he's done or trying to do, it is
kind of hard to diagnose where the problem is.

Sorry about this. I have download the source package of d-i and I follow the README document in installer/build directory. I used make all_build option to build the d-i system so, I copy build/dest to my local repository and generate the disk using debian-cd. In this way I used apt-ftparchive to create the Package and Package.gz file to debian-installer components.

I'm not saying that is a bug or something like that, I just want some suggestions to help me find where is the mistake.
