Shouldn't you also point to the installer images on the mirrors?  (Like [1].)
Sadly on s390 there's not much use in fetching CD disc images.

Single disk installations (I already reported a successful installation
recently) are still working[2].  This means that installing with "everything
in /" in a single partition DASD works.  The bootloader is correctly
written, the reboot works and networking is available post-boot.

Diverting from that partitioning looks like a fair bit of pain, though.
But as I'm still learning about how to setup VMs I'm not actually sure
if I DTRT with the /boot partition I tried to create.  At least ext2-fs
tells me that the blocksize is too small for the device, when d-i put
a filesystem on it, thus leading to EINVAL upon mounting.  But well,
a single disk install that works well is enough to fix it up post-install.

Kind regards
