At first I tried the syslinux way, but I was not able to boot from the Flash.
So I formated the Flash to ext3 and used Grub2, then I copied the hd-media
files and first installation CD ISO.
Boot was succesfull, first part of installation was without problems, I used
installation without network configuration. Last succesfull step was
partitioning and formating (all in one ext4 partition + swap). The
step "Install Base System" failed with the message:
Debootstrap Error: Failed to determine the codename for the release

I did the debootstrap manually (manual mounting of the iso etc.)
but then the installer was lost (step was not finished so following steps
writes error messages, I ignored them and it seems that some steps was
finished, but the system was not bootable) and I was not able to finish
