You can browse through the debian-installer wiki [1].  Frans' paper
describing the innerworkings of d-i is also quite insightful [2].

In any case, look at the source code.  Most of it is written in shell
scripts and the rest is in C and is quite accessible.

You can also join the IRC channel [3] if you need any help. :)
