Yes i need to customize d-i in the long run.. but for now i just want
to see or install the extra packages i added to my sargecd pool. For
ex: i have used debian-3.1.. netboot iso and have added xorg and xfce
packages.. for now i want to install my customized cd and see if after
installation the xorg and xfce works or no.

Yes i have copied the udebs along with the installer extracted from
mini.iso and apt.udeb folder ( in src ) which i got after the
successful build of d-i. I used the script move-installer-udebs.sh to
move the udebs to my sargecd pool.
