I'd recommend against doing this; if you're using the current
development version rather than the sarge installer you *will*
experience breakage at some point (and it sounds like you already
have).  Also, you don't really need to; if you download the
installer-i386 directory it's got everything you need (unless for some
reason you need a custom kernel or are trying to customize d-i).

Oh wait; have you downloaded the udebs to go along with the installer
and/or copied them to the pool directory?  (If you're not trying to
customize the installer, the best thing to do is get the udebs from a
sarge netinst cd).  If you don't have the right udebs for your
installer it won't work (the installer-i386 directory
is the engine, but to have a complete vehicle you need the udebs).

It should be in the installer-i386 directory that you put in your
source (for debian-cd purposes) directory, not the output directory.

Can you describe your file tree?
