Hard to tell without any further information...

Is your local mirror up to date? Where did yout get the debian installer
image from? If you are building with the debian-installer image from the
archive this is probably expected, as this package was not updated
recently.

You have to build your debian-cd image with a daily built installer
image from http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/. See README.easy-build
for instructions on how to build with a custom d-i image.

I don't think that matters at all.

If your problem persists please add a bit more debuging info to your
reports. It's a bit hard to tell what's wrong just with the information
in your mail. Especially check the kernel version the installer is
booting and the version of the kernel module udebs included on your CD.
If the don't match your reported error is expected.
