When anna searches for the file /cdrom/dists/stable/Release it fails. The file doesn't exist and in fact the stable directory doesn't exists and
only testing and wheezy exists.

My install setup is a usb key to install both i386 and amd64 debian.
I create the key with syslinux then copy the vmlinuz and initrd.gz and rename them to take into
account the architecture (e.g. vmlinuz ->  vmlinuz_amd64_wheezy and so on)
I create a syslinux file with the i386 and amd64 entry
and copy the netinstall iso image of the testing distribution found on http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
It works as the installation starts but fails when looking for the iso image.
