i don't think you need to set the keyboard anymore- i think
debian-installer should guess this from locale settings, unless it
guesses incorrectly.

also, i'm not sure if these are the right debconf questions anymore-
they may be leftovers from sarge.

profiles/*.postinst will get copied to the installed system and run
during the "finish-install" phase of the install process.

see SPLASHPNG in simple-cdd.conf to set the boot splash, i'm not sure
about other parts of the install.

please look in /var/log/installer/syslog to see if there are error
messages regarding the packages you wanted to install. noteably, you
should not include linux-image* packages in profiles/*.packages

live well,

p.s. please just write to the debian-custom list, not to me directly.
