OK, I've finally got round to giving this a try, and it complains about
wanting to download about 20 packages, mostly -udeb packages, as well as
others such as rootskel anna main-menu etc.

I presume that's what this comment relates to:

I can see that some (all?) of these are available as source in the
debian-installer tree, but before I start flailing around trying to get
them where the Makefile wants them, I thought I'd ask what the standard
procedure is, so what is it?  or am I wasting my time, and should just
strip out all the bootability stuff for sarge CDs for the moment?

Cheers, Phil.
