Problem installing debian ARM on nslu2


I'm following the instructions from
<http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html>. It all goes pretty
fine until the point I have to choose the installer modules, that is:
partman-auto, partman-ext3 and usb-storage-modules-2.6.18-5-ixp4xx-di.
Unfortunately, I have no usb-storage-modules-2.6.18-5-ixp4xx-di module
in the list. Without this module, the installer cannot see my USB
stick nor USB HDD, and the partman sees only the internal memory

Just in case, I checked
/lib/modules/2.6.18-5-ixp4xx/kernel/drivers/usb/ and some other places
and I could not find any usb-storage.ko like kernel module, so I'm
stuck at this point.

I use the unofficial binary file from http://www.slug-firmware.net/
with I flashed successfully onto the nslu2. (the debian-4.0r2.zip

A few info from the terminal:
~ # uname -a
Linux NSLU2 2.6.18-5-ixp4xx #1 Sat Jun 2 12:56:45 UTC 2007 armv5tel unknown

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.
