The installer images are not actually modified for skolelinux, only a couple more udebs are added to the CD. Debian-Edu is the sarge-based update to skolelinux which also used the DebianInstaller. The source to the added udebs is in their svn repository at svn://svn.debian.org/debian-edu/trunk/src/debian-edu-install
