In theory it is possible to use a partial mirror. However, doing that requires a lot more effort than just creating a full mirror. This is mainly because you will need to work around the fact that some things are missing. Note that having a mirror for only a single architecture and without source _is_ possible and is what I have myself (see my debmirror script), but only having certain packages is not at all trivial. Note that the installer creates a mini.iso image without using debian-cd (as part of the netboot build target. It is in principle possible to extend that to include more (custom) installer components, but you cannot include normal packages for the target system that way. Basically you'd be customizing the installer itself. See this document for further information: http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/doc/talks/debconf6/paper/ Cheers, FJP
