Won't it be easier/faster to boot with a floppy that has a custom
kernel? This will let you install with the Debian installation floppy
that is tailored to your machine.
ml#s-rescue-replace-kernel has instructions how to do it.
You can boot from a custom CD as well. Fortunately I do not know how
this could be done. However you might look at the Debian site as I am
quite sure you will find instructions for this as well.
