No, it isn't correct.  debian should be a symbolic link to '.'.
I guess at some problem with the mkisofs options.  I've notified
the guys that made it, and hopefully they will remaster without
that problem soon.  I also had problems trying a CD based install
for the same reason.  In your case, try just taring up the dist
directory, or telling tar to ignore debian.

There may be workarounds for CD based installs, but I havn't
fully investigated yet.
