I had a similar problem when I used the unofficial reiserfs boot
disks, and during the module loading section of the install, I chose
to download files instead of having it look on the floppy disk.  When
it asks you to load modules, select the floppy disk (you'll be asked
to insert the rescue disk, and then the driver-1 disk).

After this step, you can select to install the base system and the
rest of the packages from the internet as per usual.

The reason it happens is that it looks for the rescue.bin file in the
normal location on the official mirror, but since the reiserfs disks
are unofficial, there aren't any copies of the rescue.bin file on any
of the official Debian mirrors.

Hope that helps,
