I was able to solve the problem of installing using the installer that 
starts with setup in Windows. I found that once I chose exper mode, I was 
given a choice of graphical or text install, then a choice of desktop 
environments or none, and finally a place to enter additional cmdline 
prompts for grub in the installer. Having done this, after rebooting and 
arrowing down to choose debian and waiting for grub to load, I eventually 
had brltty start and was able to proceed with the installation. This is a 
really nice way to do an install on a machine where you have Windows 
running, especially if your bios isn't set for your cdrom to boot before 
the hard drive.
