When I installed debian on my subnotebook I simply 
 1) took out the harddrive
 2) put it in a desktop computer 
 3) installed the base system (including network support) from cd
 4) reinserted the harddrive into the subnotebook.

All you need is a 50 SEK (== 5 USD) adapter that will let you install a 2,5 
inch drive in a desktop computer. Maybe this solution isn't as elegant as 
installing from a DOS partition, but it's probably a lot easier. Just make 
sure you get all the screws back right :)
