I don't know if you are doing a build from the debian-installer package...

But the graphical install is not working right now in squeeze/testing, there is
a working version in unstable. This is due to a migration from framebuffer to X.

If you want a graphical d-i I suggest you to build it in an unstable chroot or
taking a daily-generated image from the d-i svn.
