This is not (AFAIK) something which d-i can do, and I don't think such
an arrangement would be directly bootable by Linux either (you'd need
some additional initramfs magic to boot with root in a subdirectory of
the root device).
If what you want is a chroot type thing then I think most people would
lean towards using debootstrap.
