Ugh. Not having an insmod may stall d-i development, since we're pretty
close to having a bootable disk that can get up on the net. I don't
think the big insmod is really an option:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          83k Jan  9 07:54 /sbin/insmod*

At this point, I think it'd be best to enable it, and take the bug
reports. At least d-i development could continue on i386. Maybe it would
even motivate someone to send you patches..
