Looking at the log again, it seems that the kernel really thinks there's 
floppy drive, so IMHO you can't really blame the installer for trying to 
access it...:

Jun 14 12:11:12 hw-detect: Detected module 'floppy' for 'Linux Floppy'
Jun 14 12:11:12 kernel: Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
Jun 14 12:11:12 hw-detect: 
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.16-2-486/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko 
Jun 14 12:11:12 kernel: FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077

The place in the log where the errors first happen is during the last 
hardware detection phase, just before partitioning. The installer calls 
the disk-detect script [1], which in turn calls parted_devices.

Jun 14 12:12:18 main-menu[2115]: INFO: Menu item 'disk-detect' selected 
Jun 14 12:12:59 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
Jun 14 12:13:33 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

Marc:
Could you restart the installer and when you get to the partitioning 
screen switch to VT2 and run parted_devices manually? Does it pause then 
and do you get the same errors in syslog?

Shortly after that the errors also happen during initialization of 
partman, which was apparently canceled the first time and restarted.
The partman init scripts also call parted_devices.
