First of all, contact the project members of the d-i project at Alioth [1] 
to get access to the CVS with rw permissions on the doc/ subdirectory.

Then (this goes to all translation teams), check out if there is a 
translation of the installation manual available [2] you could use as a 
start (the changes from woody to sarge include formatting changes and 
sgml->xml changes but much of the content might remain the same).

Once done, send your translated documents to the debian-l10n-dutch for
reivew and after review has taken place start commiting to the doc/
subdirectory or send patches (files) to the debian-boot mailing list (so
someone else adds them to the CVS)

Regarding Release Notes, you should fist wait until  Rob Bradford announces 
(in this list or in debian-i18n) that the Release Notes have been updated 
and are translattable. Then, same loop as above (but the CVS would now be
