I just checked the latest debian-installer image and it definitely
contains the GPG key 473041FA, which the installer is complaining
about in the logs you sent.
I believe you're not using the latest installer.
Look at the logs you sent:
> May 11 17:10:41 kernel: [ 0.000000] Linux version 2.6.32-5-kirkwood (Debian 2.6.32-15) (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-1) ) #1 Thu Jun 3 15:54:38 UTC 2010
The kernel is built in June 2010. But the latest Debian installer
should, afaik, contain a much newer kernel (one from March 2011).
Can you download the installer image again and try once more?
