install of squeeze fails on IBM Power 740 express


Unfortunately I can't install Debian on a IBM Power 740 express server.
The squeeze d-i can't complete the installation of busybox as it claims.
Changing to a shell chroot into /target and install it by hand works fine.

Watching the logs, it shows that the installer did install busybox:

Feb 25 09:14:08 in-target: The following NEW packages will be installed:
Feb 25 09:14:08 in-target:   busybox
Feb 25 09:14:11 in-target: 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove
and 0 not upgraded.
Feb 25 09:14:11 in-target: Need to get 0 B/350 kB of archives.
Feb 25 09:14:11 in-target: After this operation, 655 kB of additional
disk space will be used.
Feb 25 09:14:11 in-target: Selecting previously deselected package busybox.

But further down, there is an error:

Feb 25 09:25:48 in-target: Unexpected error; command not executed: 'sh
-c debconf-apt-progress --no-progress --logstderr -- 	apt-get -q -y
--no-remove install busybox'
Feb 25 09:25:48 base-installer: error: exiting on error

'bootstrap-base' failed with error code 1
Feb 25 09:26:03 main-menu[24354]: WARNING **: Menu item 'bootstrap-base'

The installer doesn't want to continue, retrying the operation doesn't
help, reformatting neither.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for your help.

Best regards, Adrian.
