This is wrong. The script also takes care of creating the install.386 
directory _and_ to change the isolinux config appropriately [1].
If it does not in your case, then the script is failing somewhere and you 
should trace where and why it is failing.

The script normally creates working images, so the problem is with your 
use of it.

[1] The reason it does this is to support multi-arch images containing 
both i386 and amd64 which each have their own install.<arch> directory.
