I'm not sure exactly what way the installer looks now (it's some time
since I did a Debian installation from scratch rather than an upgrade),
but in potato the profile system has been partially replaced by various
"tasks". Running 'tasksel' from a root shell after the reboot should (if
tasksel actually gets installed, that is, which I'd hope it would) let
you install those task packages.
(recombine onto one line, of course). This actually says that profiles
are still available - perhaps I ought to try installing Debian on a
scratch partition. :)
