acpi and acpid are scheduled for installation during hw-detect if 
directory /proc/acpi is present in the installer. This was implemented 
_after_ the sarge release, so only happens if a daily installer image is 
used. It happens for any installation method.
The syslog should show a message "Detected acpi support, installing 
acpi/acpid.".

As /proc/acpi is only present with 2.6 kernels, acpi and acpid are not 
automatically installed by d-i for installations using a 2.4 kernel.

The 'apt-install' script is used in d-i to either directly install a 
package (if the base system is already setup) or schedule a package for 
later installation (before that time). In any case, acpid will only be 
run _after_ the system is rebooted.
See hw-detect in svn (or during installation) for the actual code.
