Verification of installation-guide-i386 docs regarding alternative installation method

Dear maintainers,

Recently I've been playing with alternative Ubuntu installation method
without official installation media (https://launchpad.net/bugs/64765).
During my experiments I've found that several steps in the installation
guide are misleading or lead to an error.

However, I thought about trying to repeat a similar procedure with Debian
Etch to make sure that everone could benefit from my efforts (not only
Ubuntu). This method of installation is referenced as:

"D.3. Installing Debian GNU/Linux from a Unix/Linux System" [1]

I would like to ask you if there is interest in verifying installation
steps as described in the installation guide and updating the docs if
problems could be found? Has anybody tested this method recently and
can assist me with my efforts? I'm really willing to do the testing
and contribute my work to the Debian community.

With kind regards,
Wiktor Wandachowicz
