Maybe - the gpg date is fine.

I *did* notice the Lenny comment in your original post and thought
nothing of it (still supported for a few months yet) - didn't occur to
me that your installer might be a little dated.

If you're feeling really cheap - just pull down that package [*1] copy
it into the chroot - you've probably got everything else in your squid
cache (or /var/cache/apt/archives on another deb box).

Probably better to update - the freshly baked installer is just 46MB.

It might also be a good opportunity to try the USB/network installers
[*2] - makes pre-seeding easier. And there's room for more documentation
on wiki.debian.org ;-)
